   Congrats! Keep going!

     This is my sixth year being involved in Pelotonia.  In late 2013, I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer.  I had successfull surgery, but then had to do six months of chemotherapy, to make sure there were no traces of cancer cells left hiding somewhere.  As my oncologist told me, "cancer is sneaky".  I was willing to do whatever the experts said was necessary.  I had friends riding for Pelotonia, loved bicycling, and now became very interested in this great cause for obvious reasons.


      I joined Team Bexley in 2014 as a Virtual Rider. I was too weak to train, but attended team functions and fundraisers.  I even bought a new carbon-fibre road bike, to ride in future years.  My CAT scan in December showed I was cancer free, a "survivor", the best thing any cancer patient can hear!


     This really fueled my desire to regain my strength and increased my passion to ride Pelotonia in 2015 and help to conquer this dreadful disease.  I cycled a lot with friends, and trained with Team Bexley rides, which were the most challenging. These rides were longer, faster, and hillier than I was used to, but I knew this is what it would take to ride the long distances for Pelotonia.  When the actual day came, I was confident, and the 50 mile ride went well as I had trained properly.


     For my second year of riding, I wanted the challenge of a more difficult ride.  A new 57 mile route was created, from New Albany to Gambier, and this is the one I chose for 2016.  It had more hills to conquer, and I got to experience the crowds in Granville, and the finish line in Gambier.


     Training for this will continue to really help me stay strong and feeling well, and it will allow me to help others in their fight against this horrible disease.


     I had a really bad bike accident training with Team Bexley on May 22,2016, but after 3 days in the hospital and 3 weeks off of work, 3 cracked ribs and pelvis and concussion and separated shoulder, I  still thankfully was able to ride for Pelotonia, and I plan on riding every year until we reach our one goal, to conquer cancer!  With support from my loyal donors, I look forward to training and cycling in 2019!   

I hurt my neck this year cutting trees limbs with a polecutter of all things, and I could not train on a bicycle through most of July, but I rode a couple times at the end of the month and now, even though still sore, i will ride on Saturday, August 3, 2019 for my 55 mile ride to Gambier for Pelotonia.  With all of your great support I have no doubt that I will be able to finish.  Thank you all so very, very much!
