Perhaps members and friends of Harmony Systems Pro Cycling will find the following of interest:

When Don Petterson, a former American ambassador, told family and friends he intended to ride a bicycle from New Hampshire to San Francisco, most of them questioned his judgment, if not his sanity. He was in his seventies, hadn’t been on a bike for years, and had never ridden more than a few miles at a time. But, in May 2002, putting doubters behind him, he headed west. Ahead of him lay many challenges—among them, riding his loaded bike over the Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevada, crossing the Great Plains in brutal summer heat, dealing with the aftermath of a collision with a car, and traversing Nevada’s basin and range country and the Great Salt Lake’s desert. His rewards included passing through spectacular mountain forests, experiencing the aching beauty of the lonely plains, and viewing the grandeur of Western scenery.

In Old Man on a Bicycle: A Ride Across America, Petterson relates how he prepared for the 3,600-mile journey and what he saw and did during the two months he was on the road. In addition he rebuts the misconception that aging invariably means debilitating decline. Drawing on certain events of the ride, he offers research-based advice on how to ease physical and mental aspects of aging, emphasizing the importance of exercise.

About Don Petterson

A retired Foreign Service officer whose ten overseas assignments included ambassadorships to Somalia, Tanzania and Sudan, Don Petterson is the author of Inside Sudan and Revolution in Zanzibar. After his solo bicycle ride across the country he rode from Miami to Brentwood, New Hampshire, where he lives with his wife.

Old Man on a Bicycle is available on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com, other online booksellers and can be ordered at local book stores.

@HSPCycling Harmony Systems Pro Cycling was conceived and born out of the Flat Tire Bike Shop in Cave Creek, Arizona.

The brain child of a small group of elite bike racers and a community who had faith in them. The goal is to take the underfunded, and unsupported talent in the sport of cycling and provide them with the support take their shot at the top. Aligning with other existing programs in Arizona, such as the AZDEVO junior development team, we will pull from the very best young talent pool that Arizona has

Hunter Keating brought us home a bronze medal from the USA Cycling 24 Hour National Championships this past weekend. That's two podiums, two consecutive years in a row. In the solo category mind you.
This is what HSPC was made for; to help the best riders do what they do best.

After an exhausting five days of Interbike, CrossVegas, and the USA Crits Finals, we are finally back home in Arizona. It was an awesome first race trip as a (mostly) whole team. Thanks to Skratch Labs, Trek Bicycle, Boombotix, SPY, and all our other sponsors for keeping us rockin in Vegas! Stay tuned for updates and reports from our week on the road.


You like us, you REALLY like us!! In any TRUE system the net gain is ZERO, training is nothing without recovery, right? This is what HSPC is ALL about, the give AND take, the pressure AND the payoff, the risk AND the reward. This s**t is serious AND fun as hell, welcome to HARMONY SYSTEMS PRO CYCLING.


We're Harmony Systems Pro Cycling, and we're happy to be here.
