Climbing the dragon: Biker discusses visiting family’s hometown
When Owen Gorman arrived in Newton on Tuesday, he planned on taking a picture at the welcome sign and then hopping back on his back and peddling away, never to look back. However, Gorman couldn’t just ride away. Something beckoned him to stay.
“My mother grew up in Newton,” Gorman said. “We had gone back every year and I had memories of going to my grandfather’s house, going swimming at the country club, and just little bits and pieces of the town.”
“My grandfather died when I was about in second grade and I hadn’t been back since,” Gorman said. “It’s kind of a rite of passage.”
