My man Hal Walter chats on camera with The New York Times about the great outdoors, racing burros, and raising an autistic child.

Hal is also working on an expanded edition of his book “Endurance,” and I’ll post a link to that when it goes live.

    By the way, I noticed the Bike Bits monthly email from Adventure Cycling had a piece with video link about Frank Zappa playing the bicycle. I’m guessing maybe you had a hand in that.

      Y’know, Pat, I’m not sure who puts that email together. The Zappa-Steve Allen thing makes the rounds every Zappadan — I think it was Charles Pelkey who first showed it to me — but they could’ve been channeling me, hoping to finally get some value out of all the cash they’ve stuffed down my rathole.
