I am captain of the Vicious Cyclers, a team that rides in the annual New York City BikeMS event.
When I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and started Physical Therapy, my therapist asked what I had stopped with the disease progression, and I said Cycling, and told him of how I used to do touring trips through Ireland, New Mexico, Canada and up and down the east coast with my best friend.
Well, he said that we could get me back on the bike, and with his guidance, I was able to get back riding again, not the miles of the past, but I was riding again and thrilled.
Then he mentioned that I should train for the NYC Bike MS event, which has one route of 30 miles traffic free around the circumference of Manhattan. I formed the team, and told him he had to ride with me!
And that is what we have been doing since 2005!
Now, last year, I was looking for a new bike for several reasons, and was drawn to Bike Fridays from an article in the NMSS magazine Momentum about a man with MS who also doesn't want anything to get in his way of riding.
He mentioned Bike Fridays as not only great for folding, but for the low bar, which makes it easier to mount and dismount. Well, I was sold on it, went through the wonderful process of ordering a custom made Petite Pocket Rocket ( I am five foot nothing) via phone calls and emails, and received my little sweetie in the summer of 2012.
I have been so thrilled with how much it feels exactly like my old bike, how it performs better than my old bike, how it looks, and the attention I get ( I'll be honest, I do!)
Once I got it, I trained on it for the 2012 Bike MS event, but unfortunately ended up with a detached retina and could not ride last year.
But this year I was back with the team, and LOVED the ride around Manhattan, traffic free with my Pocket Rocket....
While it took a little time to adjust to the shifting ( my old bike had a granny ring), once I did, I have found hill climbing to be very enjoyable again. I am totally happy with my cycling these days and totally in love with my little bike.
It makes getting on and off the bike much easier for me. Bike Friday, you have extended my biking days for sure!!!
