Alumnus Completes 1,588-Mile Bike Ride

Department of Chemical and Biomolecular alumnus Larry Friedman (B.S. '80), logistics manager of the U.S. Army's Non-Stockpile Chemical Materials Project, completed an almost 1,600 mile, 23-day solo bike trek from southern Florida to Maryland in the summer of 2008.

The Army engineer planned the trip as a way of challenging himself, seeing the country, getting some time outdoors, and meeting new people.

"Physically, I now know my body can handle the day after day demands of putting in the miles," he told U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency reporter Sarah West in the January 2009 issue of APG News. "Spiritually, it was a rewarding experience to be able to move such great distances under my own power and take in the sights and experiences."
