Trek Founder Dies, I used to bicycle near his first factory.

The New York Times has the obituary of Mr. Burke, who started Trek bicycles in a barn near Waterloo area, a sunny farmland where I used to cycle on trips home. My sister's home in Genesee Depot is not far away.

I own and have owned several Trek bicycles and hope I can get back on the backroads of Waukesha and Jefferson counties again---God's country where the grass is greener than Ireland's and the drumlins are the gentlest climbs in a scenic version of Hesiod's "Works and Days."
