Recent biking accident as well when a woman on a tour ran into an SUV--saw a police officer riding down the 250 bypass yesterday, amazing he survivied. You have to be crazy to ride on some of the roads around here or suicidal. Glad this guy survived.

Did anyone else notice that they ran the series at the same time as a number of biking related pieces? Biking to the movies, trail maintenance, etc?

Very inspiring story, though I some how missed the final segment.

I originally read this story in the Inquirer and it is indeed very inspiring.
