I met LeRoy in 1979 when I was chairman of the American Youth Hostels Bike Committee in New York --predecessor to today's 5 Boro Bike Club, and he joined the leadership training course for ride leaders --not that he needed much training.
In addition to the PBP exploits, LeRoy has also served for many years in the 5 Boro Bike Tour as Supercaptian of Team Cutoff --the marshall teams who route riders who choose not to continue to Staten Island back to Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge.
We should all be blessed to qualify for PBP when we're 80, huh?
Hats off to LeRoy . . .
