Who was Frank Stark?
Frank Stark was a member of the Boca Raton Bicycle Club and a former airline
pilot, forced to retire because of quadruple by-pass heart surgery and two heart attacks.
As part of his recovery, Frank took up cycling and celebrated his birthday
by ridinga mile for each year of his age. “It was just me, the bike and the road,” Frank said. “I
wanted to see if I could do it.” Each year a few more friends from the club would join
in and in recent years we have had as many as 700 riders. Frank died of heart failure
