"Backing into Forward" includes a chapter devoted to Mr. Feiffer's introduction to summer on Martha's Vineyard. Finding it a welcome relief from Long Island, he purchased a home here and continues to treasure his seasonal respite from New York City. "The Vineyard is the place I've lived, vacationed, and worked most happily," he says. "When the weather is nice I write outside under a tree in an Adirondack chair. And when I stare into space, it's comforting to think 'I own it.'"As for retirement, Mr. Feiffer shrugs it off. "I've been retired all my life," he quips, adding, in a more serious tone: "I was fortunate enough to walk into doing work I love, the way I want to do it, over the years getting away with murder. It didn't make me rich but it made me famous. I'm happy to move from one area of endeavor to another."

Cycling since the age of six. Never got off my bike,.I became a bicycle messenger in the 80's for Can Carriers, Started Born to Run Bicycle Messengers a few years after. I guess I made an unconscious decision to use my car as little as possible in NYC until I just eventually got rid of it.
I've bicycle toured all over the States including Alaska,and Hawaii!I also made it to the jungles of Mexico. As far as Europe I've only made it to France.I've always been a Cycling Commuter in NYC from Manhattan,Queens and Ft Lee ,NJ.
My wife makes fun of me because I hardly know how to navigate the subway!
