Freeze to speak at Roller Mill
The China Grove Roller Mill is regularly open on Sundays, but this week a guest that’s biked thousands of miles across the United States will speak at the south Rowan historic site.
David Freeze, who has taken two different cross-country bike rides, will speak Sunday, Nov. 9 about his experience and also sell his two books. Freeze described both bike rides as unique experiences.
“It was a great adventure,” he said. “I have spent the biggest portion of my life running and traveling and I wanted to do something different and a little bigger.”
A news release from the South Rowan Historical Society said Freeze would be at the mill from 2 p.m to 4 p.m Freeze is scheduled to speak at 2:15 p.m about
Freeze joked that there’s nothing better than seeing the United States at 12 m.p.h. to 15 m.p.h. Though, in steep, hill areas, Freeze said the speed is closer to 5 m.p.h.
Free’s first cross-country bike ride was from Maine to Key West. His second was from Oregon to Myrtle Beach.
