Within a week, I will finish my 2,500 Atlantic Coast Cycling tour and Cycling for Good. Over the next week, in lieu of my “regular” schedule, I’ll remind you of the people who inspired my ride – both before and during my adventure. So hang in there – lots of posts to come, and without predictable internet, they may come in spurts!
Welcome to week six of my 2,500 mile bike ride I’m calling Cycling for Good. This week I’m riding in honor of Andrew Powell and his fight to recover from devastating injuries and to return to running and triathlon. Learn about AP and the Challenged Athlete Foundation. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference, too.
Meet this week’s over 50 athlete, Maggie Joslin, 67.
When you meet Maggie Joslin, you might not guess that this elegant beauty is a revolutionary. But she is. The daughter of a Detroit police officer and housewife and a product of a Catholic school education, Maggie broke free of her traditional background and set her own path. She attended law school and soon joined a national law firm and became partner. She defied the odds and managed to balance life as a mother to two children, with the demands of being a partner in a busy public finance practice.
In Part 1 of Cycling Beautiful North Carolina, you learned what it was like to cycle through tropical storm Ana as it moved on shore. In Part 2, I’ll share the remainder of our cycling tour through North Carolina. It was nothing less than magical – for the most part, we had great weather, great roads, beautiful rural scenery, and friendly people.
