More about Pastor Bob and his bikes...
On this website I plan to post the videos of my sermons, archive and tell something about my various bicycle projects, and add additional content as interests me, especially saddles.
I started video recording my sermons in the summer of 2011. They will be presented here in a small format for archival purposes. I'm doing this for one reason; my daughter. The idea was generated by a friend of mine, Roger Fricke, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 88. His father was a pastor. As far as he knew only one audio recording exists of all his father's sermons. It felt like a good idea to keep them some other place than on my computer.
I began riding a bicycle about the age of 5 (not counting tricycles). When I was 10, I received a new single speed cruiser from Sears. I bought my first 10 speed at age 15. It was a white Sears Free Spirit made by Puch in Austria. It was stolen early in my Freshman year in College.
After I was married to Ginger in 1980, we purchased matching blue Schwinn Travelers. These were made for Schwinn by Panasonic in Japan. They were reliable, yet heavy 10 speeds. I still own mine, (albeit is just the frameset at this moment). Ginger's was donated to our Church Yard Sale in the early 2000s.
A real life pastor since 1980.
While these pages will contain information about the bicycles I've collected and are currently riding here in New Hampshire. Some bikes have more of a story than others. Each is unique.
My sermons tell another story, my faith story. It is even longer and more interesting than the bicycles. As time allows I'll add more to this story than just the recent sermons I began video recording in the summer of 2011.
Over the years I've served the church as a youth minister, Christian educator, associate pastor, and since 1994 served two churches as their pastor. While I'm originally from Maryland, I've been called to churches in New Jersey, Kentucky, Georgia and since 2001, my current church in New Hampshire. I'm expecting to retire from this congregation in about 2023.
Thank you for viewing my website, checking the external links I'll add from time to time, and letting me know what you think. May God bless you for doing so.
