Two Bicycling Articles in Statesman

Two Nice pieces about bicycling in the Statesman today! Both focus on links between bicycling and healthy living.

First, Henry Miller profiles Salem Bicycle Club Member and Monster Cookie Coordinator, Larry Miles, who had a stroke in 2004, by-pass surgery in 2006, and is using bicycling as an important part of his fitness plans.
As a two-year member [of the SBC], Miles said he logs about 1,000 miles a year taking part in about two-dozen club rides, along with five full century 100-mile events.
The article also features information on the Monster Cookie. It notes that Larry still needs volunteers. For more information, whether to register or to volunteer (or both!), see the SBC page here.

Also in the paper is an article on two Monmouth-Independence riders who will ride around the state as part of a Central Lions Club benefit on May 5. Greg Pierce and Marc Powell will ride to Pendleton to attend a statewide Lions convention. On the way they will highlight illnesses that impair vision and hearing.
