The Wild Ride
Accomplishing a 900-mile bike ride through the Alaska wilderness to benefit Parkinson’s research was challenging, exhilarating and yes, dangerous.
In August of 2011 Doug completed a 900-mile journey from Deadhorse to Anchorage, AK. It was one of the most mentally and physically challenging experiences of his life.
In 2012 Doug rode over 300 miles across the Colorado Rocky Mountains as a member of the Davis Phinney Foundation Ride the Rockies Team. That year he also conquered the Copper Triangle to raise money for the Davis Phinney Foundation.
While preparing for the 2013 Copper Triangle Doug was severely injured in bicycle accident, breaking seven ribs. He was not able to ride in the event, but was able to attend. However that same year after a brief, and most likely not full recovery, Doug joined the Friend’s for Phinney team in Ohio for part of their Coast to Coast ride.
