Glenn Eames, owner of the Old Spokes Home, can tell a good story.  Tonight was no exception.  Glenn shared many funny and poignant moments from his 1992 bike trip across Cuba.


50 folks came and enjoyed Glenn’s tales of Cuba’s special period after the fall of the Soviet Union.  The Cuban government had purchased 750,000 Chinese-made bicycles to help keep citizens mobile after the favorable petrol agreement with the Soviets fell apart.
