Michael is a fighter. Michael Ray suffered a stroke in 2013, leaving him with almost no control of the right side of his body.
Despite the accident, he started cycling at the National Ability Center in 2015, where he rides today with one functional leg. This year will mark Ray’s third year participating in the Summit Challenge ride. He hopes to cut last year’s 50 mile, 9.5 hour time almost in half!
For Michael biking is not the end goal, “I want to go back to work again. Cycling is a step toward getting back to work.”… “I need the challenges of the course because I want all of the people to know that I am determined to get back to myself”
