I enjoy sharing the experience with others, seeing this wonderful world, and feeling fit. At first, I ran a little, then moved on to marathons, and then realized that running damaged some disks in my back, which hurt. I switched to cycling and have rarely been so happy that I had a little pain, from running.
I started cycling in 2010 when I lived in London. At first, it was a bit scary to cycle on the left, near double-decker buses, and on winding roads. Those wind so much that the word “block” doesn’t exist in British English. That word requires 4 straight roads, which doesn’t happen often in London or other parts of Britain.
After learning to love cycling in London, I cycled further, and eventually, my bike took me across the island of Britain. Later, I cycled in Belgium and France. In 2015, I returned to the US. Initially, I looked forward to more long cycle rides, but they had to wait when I learned that I had prostate cancer, click here for part of that story.
In 2017, I learned that my cancer had spread, but since I can still ride my bike, I’m cycling across the US and raising money for cancer research. I can’t say that I’m happy about having cancer, but it did nudge me toward enjoying long bike rides sooner than later. The story goes on.
