Bobbi Montgomery

Author Biography

Bobbi Montgomery is an award-winning English teacher who retired just in time to begin pedaling across America. Also a runner and triathlete, Montgomery came to love bicycle touring when she joined Honeywell and others on a Nova Scotia tour in 1987. Other group trips whetted her appetite to pedal greater distances, so when she and Honeywell discovered their similar retirement dates, her decision was easy. Cheered on by her partner, Bob, her children, grandchildren, and friends in Ohio, she joined Honeywell in Oregon for their three-month adventure on bicycles.

Back at home, she continues to ride the hills of southern Ohio with her local bicycle club, Gears4Beers.Now she consults for an education publisher and works with student teachers in southwest Ohio. She also volunteers in her community and is a board member of the HeartStone Foundation, a non-profit that helps those with life-threatening illnesses pay their medical bills.

She will be presenting "Across America by Bicycle: Alice and Bobbi's Summer on Wheels" with Alice Honeywell.
