Ride the Rockies 2017

Congrats to Eyecycle members George McDermith and Andre van Hall for participating in the 2017 Ride the Rockies! ¬†George was interviewed in this Denver Post article, “At Ride the Rockies, tandem teams with a blind cyclist scale the peaks.

From George:

When I first began focusing on my health I was eager to find anything to keep me active. I was introduced to EyeCycle through an event, and decided to give biking a shot. Little did I know that one thirty mile ride would open for me one of the chief enjoyments of my life. This past June I participated in Ride the Rockies, which turned out to be a 363 mile ride involving 28,000 feet of climbing over the course of seven days. This feat took all the physical and mental energy I could put into it, and provides me with a deep sense of accomplishment. I could not do what I do on a bike without the support, of EyeCycle Colorado. Through the use of their bikes, captains, and camaraderie I have found something that fills a need both on the physical and emotional level. If I, who thought I was going to perish after my first thirty mile ride, can successfully complete Ride the Rockies then you can make positive changes in your life as well.
