Richard Greer of Marion feels blessed to be back on a bike after suffering a stroke 8 and a half years ago.

“When I first had my stroke I was really disabled. I couldn’t even sit up in bed without help,” Greer said.

Being disabled was really hard on Richard who was a life long cyclist before the stroke.

“I’ve been a bike rider my whole life,” Greer said. “Iused to ride a lot of centuries, and the highlight was 1995 I when I rode the Davis double, which is a double century ride, 200 miles.”

Greer worked really hard to rehab so he could ride a bike again. Northtown Cycling designed a bike specifically for Richard so he could continue his passion for cycling.

“I am trying to stay healthy. I think I do everything I can to avoid having a stroke again,” Greer said.
