Slideshow: Bears on Bikes Roll into Reunion Archives


After a 135-mile trek up from Portsmouth, N.H., more than a dozen intrepid members of the Class of 1957 arrived on campus to a warm welcome of cheers Thursday afternoon. This is the third time in as many ’57 reunions that a group led by David Webster ’57 has made the journey by pedaling up a coastal route while raising money for the Charles Chapman ’57 Scholarship Fund. Webster, announcing that the fund now stands at $75,000, said they make the ride for two reasons. “The Old Guard has never done it, so this is a first,” saying he prefers the name “Golden Bears,” and added with a smile, “and it’s a training run for our 60th when we’re all 82!”
