Roy M. Wallack owes it all to bike touring. An article about his 1982 Pacific-to-Atlantic tour launched his journalism career. His first book, The Traveling Cyclist, detailed his many trips in the 1980s and 1990s, including the first into the USSR. His son was born exactly nine months after his 1994 honeymoon tandem ride from Nice, France, to Rome. Last summer, they did their first father-son tandem trip, from Portland, Oregon, to Yellowstone. Roy has edited several bike magazines and written five bike and running books, including Bike for Life: How to Ride to 100.
