In the early fall of 2007, (a year bicycling in the U.S. again reached some kind of tipping point as gas hit whatever regional peak it reached a gallon, and suddenly, the old iron horse seemed to speak to just about every ill society had to throw its way), Wittmer, a journeyman with undergraduate degrees from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and a Master’s in Journalism from the University of Florida, landed a job helping map a 3000-mile cycling route down the Eastern Seaboard.
He’d bicycled for years before then, commuting 15 of those, but the feeling which quickly settled over him on that ride was unprecedented.
Documenting the progress of the ambitious East Coast Greenway trail project and sending back dispatches from cycling’s future, he knew, as slow as he was traveling, he was actually way out in front of the pack, catching the freshest air.
Somehow the ride inside that slipstream remains unbroken, and it’s been one, long, windblown downhill for Matt Wittmer ever since. In just those few short years, he’s grown from enthusiast to advocate to author.
Jump on your bike, DC, and join him on the greater DC area’s greatest rides. This promises to be his first, and best, book.
