I’m riding 4:
The wife of a friend passed away of metastatic melanoma. At the time I was training for the Tour de Tucson, a 109 mile bike ride. She kept me going, knowing the battle she was in. Unfortunately she passed away before the race at the age of 33. We dedicated that ride to her, her husband and 4 children. The ride was very difficult and emotional, so once the race was over I put away my bike. I didn’t ever ride it again. It brought too much pain. Now I am riding to put that behind me.
