According to Tree Hugger
, Bud Shaefer received a bicycle that was a gift to him from his adult children, and he wanted to make sure that they did not waste their money.
According to Twin Cities
, Shaefer embraced biking and soon enough he started to earn money after he landed a part-time job delivering newspapers that he delivers in the afternoon.
According to KSN
, Shaefer said that people think he does it for a living but he says he does not do it for the money. It is more about the journey.
In the winter time Shaefer does use a vehicle when the weather is bad, and then he bikes his route on his stationary bike in his basement.
