Stephen Kreider Yoder and his wife, Karen, had been married for 42 years when last summer — at a combined age of 127 — the two successfully rode a tandem bike 3,819 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
The 12-week adventure taught the couple a multitude of lessons about teamsmanship, resilience, planning (and spontaneity), the hospitality of strangers, the beauty of nature, and the addictive satisfaction of checking items off of their bucket list.
This week Stephen, a journalist who has worked for The Wall Street Journal since 1983, and Karen, a retired professor and K-5 teacher, invite Monday Morning Radio listeners to ride along as they recount the inspiring story of their journey.

Two of the country’s top experts on leadership — men who write bestselling books and get paid the big bucks to mentor top executives — confess that managing others doesn’t have to be complicated.
In fact, Ken Blanchard — who has sold more than 23 million copies of his books worldwide — and his colleague Randy Conley contend that outstanding leadership boils down to two common-sense ingredients: build trust with your employees and strive to serve others ahead of yourself.
Of course, even managers who are prepared to take simple steps to boost employee satisfaction and productivity can benefit from a “leadership manual.” This week, Blanchard and Conley join host Dean Rotbart to share practical ideas from their latest book, Simple Truths of Leadership: 52 Ways to Be a Servant Leader and Build Trust.
