    A year ago I wasn't sure I'd ever have the strength or agility to pedal this ride again and I catalogued it as a rehab "stretch goal." Maybe I could handle it by 2020, I imagined. Or maybe it's a piece of the planet I'd never see up close again. Turns out a lot of rehab exercise and a high-tech superbike got me there just under 2.5 years after I was a paralyzed
    Hell yeah man, awesome Friday afternoon read.
    Keep on keeping on with the updates!

    This has to be the most inspirational thing I have seen this year. Well done! I am very happy for you!

    So awesome to get to ride in park city with gnarwhale last week. He's got some room to grow on the walking side of things but looks damn comfortable shredding a bike! Felt just like me after my injury... fuck this slow ass walking shit, get me a Yeti!

Last time we hung out was over a year ago and I was just relearning to walk with a walker. So, it was really special to be out on the move with him again and I surprised even myself by cleaning nearly all of Navajo Rocks trail.
    TJ, I've been telling everyone that if any human will overcome an injury like you suffered -- it's YOU.

    Always knew you'd get to this point.

    Even better that R. Grant was with you. Tell him I said hey.
