Ride Around the World Challenge

I’m a 15-year prostate cancer survivor and I give a great deal of credit to my bicycles (Yup. I have five of them). Staying fit and keeping a healthy body supports a strong immune system, which is the body’s best defense against cancer.

My bikes have taken me 31,919.2 very enjoyable miles since my treatment and I’ve enjoyed every minute. Well, there were those times when it poured down on me; when it was super hot; and some of those climbs, i.e., Alpe d’Huez. But yeah, I still loved every minute.

To me, it doesn’t matter how well I ride, how fast I go, how many people I pass (full disclosure: I do have a California state championship jersey in track racing), I just love being outside and the great feeling that comes after an hour or so in the saddle.

To encourage other cancer survivors to explore cycling as part of their cancer survival plan, I created the Around the World Challenge. The rules are simple:

  1. Track the miles you ride – it doesn’t matter how.
  2. When you have covered 24,901.6 miles (the distance around the world at the equator) email us and we’ll tell you how to get one of our super cool jerseys.

Why I Follow the Tour de France Lanterne Rouge

In case the term Lanterne Rouge is unfamiliar, it derives from the red lantern waved by the train conductor from the rear of the train to signal the engineer. In the early days of the Tour de France, the term was applied to the last rider to finish the day’s stage.

Max Leonard wrote a book about the Laterne Rouge and the Tour de France in 2015 and it’s a great read.

I like to follow the Lanterne Rouge because these riders are giving everything they have to stay in the toughest bicycle race on the planet. We always hear about the leaders. I like to know the stories about the tailend of the peloton.
