#1 Truest Fan of the Gimbels Ride

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

Dear John,

Barb D. gave me your e-mail. You don’t know me and I don’t know you. But we may have taken notice when you rode by Old Kensico Road and I was out there cheering the bikers with Ms Mildred.

 I enclose for you a couple of pictures of your truest fan, that I took on the Nov. 22/23 weekend when I was visiting.


Please know that “cheering the bikers” has been a No 1 topic for years, as have your kind attentions and flowers given joy.  

My connection with the family is this: I was welcomed into the family 44 years ago as a 16 year old high school student from Germany spending a year on the AFS Cultural exchange program. The experience has truly shaped my life. We have loved each other and stayed close ever since.

On a side note -.Your bike club may want to check out the “Hamburg Cyclassics”. It is one of the most prestigious bike races for non-pros in Europe with a 55 km and a 100 km course. Hamburg is my home town. In case any of you make it over here, I’d be happy to help along.
