“Bicycle Man” visits PCWS

On Wednesday, April 10th at 3 pm, Wilfried Steinback spoke to students, parents and faculty about his adventure circling the globe by bicycle. He started by putting on his helmet and reflective vest, as he stood in front of the awestruck children. Even though the fellowship hall was very hot and the children were tired from their school day, they listened with such concentration to this man’s amazing story.  Wilfried is a Waldorf teacher who lives in Sweden. He began his journey there 10 months ago. He showed us on his map, the path he followed east, taking ferries across bodies of water, through Russia and on to several Asian countries. He then took a cargo ship to the west coast of North America, where he continued eastward all the way to Arlington, VA. He has visited many Waldorf schools along the way and enjoys inspiring people to use their bicycles to get around. He talked about how healthy that is for our bodies and our planet. The children had wonderful comments and questions!  They loved seeing his fully loaded bike and pop-up tent. You can follow Wilfried’s travels on his blog here
