Hey cyclists, did you hear that there's a new metric century ride on December 6?
The ride is the Milestone Challenge and benefits San Diego endurance athlete Skip Gleavey. This summer, Skip was in cycling accident which has left him paralyzed below the waist. Proceeds from the Milestone Challenge will go to help cover his health care costs during his rehabilitation.
Skip has completed marathons, century rides and triathlons. He did those events while recovering from heart surgery and Stage 4 Lymphoma. Now he needs to conquer another challenge - life after a devastating accident.
The ride will be a typically beautiful Southern California course starting in Solana Beach and going up the Pacific coast.
Cyclists and San Diegans. It's time to do a race for one of our own.
