One More Ride: Life on the Road
On one level, One More Ride is a collection of stories and remembrances of a life spent on unique motorcycle journeys on the highways and byways of the Upper Midwest and beyond.
But One More Ride from Fred Milverstedt is more than a litany of motorcycle rides: it’s a remembrance of a noteworthy life, with various adventures and misadventures laid out in a fascinating series of stories. In One More Ride, the story is the thing: life, after all, is nothing more than a series of stories and remembrances, and this set of tales details a life spent on the edge–or, at the least, a life spent on the back of a motorcycle.
Combining fond remembrances of growing up in Wisconsin with some frank assessments of life on a motorcycle today,One More Ride is the chronicle of a unique life, filled with frank talk and a unrivaled writing story, perfect for both motorcycle enthusiasts and those yearning for a life on the road.
Milverstedt was born and raised in Madison, Wis., served three years in the U.S. Navy and graduated from UW-Madison in 1969. He is the co-founder of Isthmus, a Madison alternative weekly now in its 40th year of publication. With partner Barbi, he lives in Plymouth, Minn.
