Let me tell you how I really feel.

Let the Ride Continue

For my 60th birthday I was rewarding myself with a trip to Europe on my Bike Friday. However, I had an uninvited guest to my birthday party!!

The day after my birthday I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Two weeks later I was in the first of my six chemo treatments.

I posted a short note on Facebook about my situation and received much encouragement from friends, and even distant acquaintances but one of the best came from an old college buddy that I have not heard from or seen in nearly 40 years. He simply said please let the ride continue.

He had no idea that I am an avid bicyclist but I thought what a perfect title for this journey. I asked my oncologist if I could still ride my bike, he replied absolutely I want you to stay active.

I felt relieved but soon discovered that my rides would be limited to a 6 mile round trip to the local coffee shop. While the ride is short it feels so good to have the wind blow through my helmet over my bald head.

On these short rides I use them as physical and emotional therapy for chemo therapy. The increased heart rate accelerates my emotions as well. During these 20 minute rides I experience euphoria to weeping when I think about what is going on but when I arrive for my coffee the breeze has dried my tears and I feel a contentment that is hard to explain.

Let the ride continue!!
