Cycling: Local rider helping her team battle MS in fundraiser

-A A +A
By The Staff

It’s the best of both worlds for those who do what they love to do and do it for a good cause.

Local cyclist, Cathy Cleland will do just that next weekend as she hits the road for the Multiple Sclerosis ride Saturday and Sunday.

The Bike MS: Pedal Los Pueblos is a fundraising event that has cyclists hitting the road for two days, covering 150 miles.

Cleland, who has been cycling for 25 years, said she can’t wait to take part in the annual trek. Cleland started out cycling for fun and turned it into a lifestyle.

“As a self-conscious teenager, surely this sounds familiar,” she said. “I wanted another activity to stay in shape. In addition, I was a year-round swimmer, but wanted to cross-train. I started riding my mom’s 10-speed and fell in love with the conditioning aspect and the feeling of freedom, pure strength and accomplishment that is achieved from riding up a tough hill, then coasting down.”

She has been riding the 150-mile trek for Multiple Sclerosis since she was in graduate school. She took a few years off to birth two boys before hitting the trail once again, looking for the ride in New Mexico.
