We're moving!

We're moving our new stories to Denison.edu, the college's super-sweet mothership. Over time, we'll be moving some of our best past stories from TheDEN over there too. In the meantime, we've made available an archive of all stories here. This archive will be available for a few months before this site is permanently shut down. See you at Denison.edu! - June 2016

Easy rider

On May 23, Cam Shuford ’63 hopped on his bike in Evanston, Ill., (his hometown, though he now lives with his wife in Hawaii), and started pedaling. His destination? The Hill for his 50th Reunion.

He biked for seven days— six hours a day—to tackle the 400-mile trek. Along the way, he spent nights with hosts from Warm Showers, a world-wide organization made up of volunteers willing to offer touring cyclists a place to stay during their journeys (although Shuford confesses he did splurge for one night in a hotel).

Just after he wrapped up the final moments of his trip—a long haul up the main drag—he told a couple of well-wishers that he was considering running the Reunion 5k on Saturday, but he’ll likely be packing up his bike to be shipped back to Hawaii, where he’ll meet it after his flight home.

Shuford first had thoughts of biking across the U.S., but settled instead for this little trek. Was it a warm-up for an eventual cross-country tour? No.

Said Shuford with a laugh: “Enough is enough.”
