Upon retiring from St. Lawrence last July 1, after working for the University for 31 years, John Clark '69 found he had time to do some things he'd always dreamed of doing, such as a cross-Canada solo bike trek. He flew to Vancouver last September 5 and he and his 27-gear, 28-pound bicycle and 50 pounds of camping and cooking gear arrived home outside DeKalb Junction, N.Y., on October 15. Clark told a Watertown Daily Times reporter that he mostly traveled the wide-shouldered Trans-Canada Highway, staying in motels more than he had planned to so he could keep up with the news after September 11, and that the monotony of the prairies was a tougher challenge than the terrain of the Rockies. The former St. Lawrence wrestling coach and director of athletics has since returned to coaching, this time for the Canton High School wrestling team.
