Matt Stewart and his dad David are going on a bike trip this summer through Eastern Europe in search of family roots. They plan to trace the travels of Jewish relatives who fled Europe for New York in the first part of the 20th century. Starting in Warsaw and ending in Odessa, it’ll be a physically and emotionally demanding trip traveling a part of the world his ancestors fled in fear decades ago. Not a bad ride either when you consider Matt’s dad is 57 years old.
See Stewart Bike Trip: Odessa or bust for the tale of their journey.
