The submission is in the "Why We Ride" section of the magazine. I believe the way to read it on-line is with the digital subscription. the regular web site has a back issue posting but it gets updated infrequently. It is nothing special at all, just tells why I like to ride road bikes (for relief from my health issues) and thanking Zapata Espinoza, the editor, for his articles on losing his wife, Ronette, to cancer. these helped me have perspective on my problems and overcoming them. Thanks for all of the kind remarks here, however, there are many members here and especially in the Adaptive Cycling forum with a lot worse problems than I have. Please read these and support them (eg. "The Wounded Warrior Foundation")
