Harold Goldstein
Share |
Harold Goldstein is one of the most prolific ride leaders in the club.  A native of Brooklyn who moved to the area in 1974, he is a long time bike rider.  Also an active caver and rock climber, Harold taught civil engineering at the University of the District of Columbia for over 20 years.  He loves to travel, having spent many summers roaming through developing countries, once spending a year on the road, mostly in Africa and Asia.  He also did the Cycle Across Maryland ride for its first 11 years.

As a co-leader, for some 8 years, of the Bud Bike Friday ride out of Buddy Attick Park, you can count on seeing Harold on almost any Friday of the year, and on many impromptu Tuesday rides too.  This is just one of a series of rides he has led since becoming a member of Potomac Pedalers in 1989. It was Jerry Leight who corralled Harold into leading rides. In 1990, he took over the Wednesday night A/B Poolesville Flyer that became a club staple through the 90s.

Harold has also been responsible for organizing the Black Hill picnic ride since the mid-90's.  We just enjoyed this ride in June.  He also organized the 1999 club century with George Haas and the 2000 version with Barbara Good. These were the first 'ice cream and music' centuries and more than doubled previous ridership.

Harold urges YOU to lead a ride! Contact your ride coordinator to see how easy it is. And he suggests that if you already are a ride leader, you urge riders on your rides to lead one in the future.
