Michael Patrick

While blog browsing I came across Michael Patrick blog yesterday. I know Michael as a mtn bike racer. all my conversations with Michael had been short while winded during races. I was unfamiliar with the details of the struggle with brain cancer. He and his blog are inspiring take a look and see what he has been through. It puts the whole aspect of dealing with pain and struggling in perspective.

bikes are saving the world

A car in Africa often costs over 10 times the average annual income, a bicycle can make the difference between, getting an education or not, earning a living or not, or receiving medical care or not. People in Africa walk up to 3 miles to get water. Mostly women or girls. After walking the water must then be boiled and filtered to clean it. All labor intensive but necessary task to prevent diseases.

Here is the solution
