To benefit


Bob Zeeb was a retired educational administrator for the Newton Schools, a coordinator of adult education for the First Unitarian Society of Newton, an avid environmentalist, social justice activist, gardener, and cyclist.  He was a resident of Newtonville with his wife, Holly, for the past 45 years. 

Bob was regularly cycling 50 miles a day and hoped to make a cross-country trip the summer of 2011.  He died November 10, 2009, as the result of a bicycle accident due to a missing electrical utility vault access plate.

Bob and Holly enjoyed many cycling trips together:  in Crete, in the Finger Lakes regions of New York State, in the Boulder area of Colorado, and in Maine.  Bob and their two sons, Peter, of Arlington and Noel, of Cambridge, cycled in the Loire Valley in France together in 2008 in celebration of his 70th birthday.

Because he was so passionate about cycling, we think he would be especially pleased that this bike ride will benefit LivableStreets.
