A Bucyrus native chooses a unique and difficult way of returning for his 50th high school reunion September sixth. 68-year-old Mike Price rode a bicycle 3,865 miles over the course of three months from his home in Anchorage, Alaska. Several of Price's classmates waited for him on the downtown square. He was expected to pull up at eleven o'clock Tuesday morning and even after that long trip was only about fifteen minutes late. Price passed through western Canada, then through six states before reaching Ohio. He rode alone, taking back roads to avoid heavy traffic and usually camped overnight. Price says what kept him going was the nice people he met along the way. Price rides his bike around Anchorage and has taken some long trips, but nothing like this. Then he thought about this being his class's 50th reunion and decided time was running short in his life and he wanted an adventure. Price's wife will fly here next week. They'll drive a camper to tour New England, take it to Nevada where it's stored, then fly home.
