Bicycle Mojave...and Beyond!!!

Good health and exercise are his mantra even though Multiple Myeloma is in him. Perhaps you would like to donate to research and are looking for the right cause, his site is dedicated to research. If you find battling myeloma is an adventure then you might like the diversion of following his bicycle adventure across Europe.
