As you can see from the photo, I have been an avid biker from an early age. Actually, only 9 years ago did I begin to ride distances longer than to my kids' school. Encouraged by friends to ride for enjoyment, I began to ride and now because of Pelotonia, I am riding more in earnest. This will be my tenth Pelotonia and I hope it is amazing as the prior 100 mile rides. This year I am so pleased to ride with Sarah again. As for many families, cancer has affected ours. Fortunately, the outcomes have been successful for my mother, brother, and cousin We have come to know the work of the James and support their incredible efforts to cure this disease. I feel fortunate to be able to ride in support of this effort.
