I am over 70 years old and have been riding road bicycles with the Saddlebrooke Cyclemasters since we moved to Tucson 15 years ago. I have ridden in 11 El Tours. In the last 2 years, I have had 2 bad falls resulting in fractured ribs, a fractured pelvis, a broken hip and 2 bad concussions. I felt that I had to stop cycling rather than risk another concussion. So I have taken up stationary bicycling. Today’s ride was my opportunity to participate in El Tour de Tucson this year.

I had major hip surgery in February of 2015 as I have hip dysplaysia and hypermobility syndrome (Periacetabular Osteotomy). My hip is still held together with 3 screws, but I’m really working on getting strong again and taking part in awesome things like this! Thank you so much for providing an outlet where anyone can get involved! I appreciate it!

I rode in Indoor El Tour to put a face to Team RWB (Red White & Blue), a non-profit veterans organization. Team RWB inspires me to remain socially active by connecting with veterans and non-veterans, as well as physically active through the camaraderie of fellow athletes. Cycling events like Indoor El Tour further inspires me by allowing me to do both as well as challenging me to push myself. Thanks Perimeter Bicycling for continuing to put on a fun activity that allows everyone to participate wherever they are!

I love cycling. I’ve been a Rotarian for 30 years in the Phoenix 100 Rotary Club. I’m proud that Rotary has fought to eliminate Polio from the world during the years I’ve been involved. (We’re almost there!) I’m glad you gave me the opportunity to be involved in El Tour in this fashion.
