The Bar Mitzvah and the Beast One Family's Cross-Country Ride of Passage by Bike
* Kids fighting, equipment breaking, characters popping up around each turn -- all the good cycling material is here
Amateur bike rider, father of three, and everyday public school teacher, Matt Biers-Ariel never dreamed of riding a bike across the United States. But then his hard-to-impress teenage son, Yonah, refused to have a bar mitzvah as he approached age thirteen. No dancing with grandma or chanting traditional prayers? Something had to be done to celebrate this rite of passage.
