Dr. Chynn was always into cycling when he was younger, and actually rode his Colnago bicycle up from Atlanta to New York City in 1997 after he completed his Fellowship in Corneal Transplantation and Refractive Surgery at Emory University. He made that trip in 14 days, averaging about 100 miles per day (then didn't ride his bike for another year)!
Mont Ventoux is a famous climb in the French alps, where the British cyclist Tony Simpson died in the Tour de France a half-century ago, within sight of the summit (afterwards, amphetamines were found in his blood). His famous last words: "Put me back on my bike!"
Today, there is a monument to Simpson on the spot where he perished, where passing cyclists often stop to pay their respects and leave behind a token (like a water bottle or something like that).
Dr. Chynn's neighbor, Roe, who frequently takes care of his dog, Rhett, was so concerned about this difficult climb he will face, that she told him, "Can you put something in your will, stating that if anything happens to you, that I will get Rhett?"
Dr. Chynn agreed, since Roe loves Rhett more than anyone else does (besides himself), and Rhett loves Roe the most also (besides his master)--so this posting by Dr. Chynn is his statement that Roe is now officially Rhett's godmother, and will get him if anything happens to Dr. Chynn so he cannot take care of Rhett himself!:)
