Celebration Cycle is Underway!

We rolled out from Savile Road Bicycle Shop in Delmar, NY on Thursday, October 1.  It was overcast and cool – which overall meant good cycling weather – especially for tackling the hills over West Sand Lake, Averill Park, Stephentown, and Hancock.

Our story got some great coverage from Albany media outlets!  We hope it inspires more people to sign up to become organ donors!  

Goal of 200-mile bike ride is raising awareness of organ donation

DELMAR – A 68-year-old heart transplant patient is on his way to Boston with his daughter to celebrate 20 since his transplant. Harold Strope and his daughter, Sara, are taking the same route from Delmar to Boston on bicycles instead of the ambulance he took in 1995. Doctors say: “Go for it.”
