Cycling to Week One

By David Gonnerman '90
September 3, 2010

Cyclists Sam Williams '14 (right) and his older brother, Nathan, finished their 9-day trek in the rain.

When cyclist Sam Williams '14 recently told his parents he was "going for a ride," he had bigger ideas than pedaling leisurely through his hometown of Noblesville, Indiana. Nine days and 640 miles later, he finished his journey outside St. Olaf's Hoyme Hall in plenty of time for Week One orientation that begins Saturday.

Minnesota Public Radio's Alex Friedrich calls Williams "The most relieved student at St. Olaf."
