Our friend Hung Le is about to get on his bike and head west and when I say “bike” I don’t mean motorcycle and when I say west I don’t mean Springfield, MA.  Mr. Le is planning  on riding a bicycle from Massachusetts to Oregon.

In honor of this big adventure Hung’s sister and brother-in-law hosted a party at their house and invited some family and friends.

(Sorry – for any mislabels – and to those whose names I don’t know.)

Dô, Dô (Yo, Yo)! A good time was had by all.

Lisa and I are happy to say we’ve know Hung over thirty years and his love of fun and boundless enthusiasm is always a pleasure to be around.

Friends and family insist they are glad to see him go – but we know we’ll all miss him.

Hung likes to call Lisa and I “Beauty and the Beast”, but I think this picture is a much better example:

Biker Le shared his route – in case we have to send out a search party:

He’s doing this trip solo with no sag wagon so everything he needs is going with him:
