Owen came out of the last five days so proud and confident. He felt protected, safe and comfortable in this very new environment. He’s walking a little taller tonight, and a little slower as that lactic acid builds up! Thank you Cycle4life for a wonderful experience filled with kindness and support. See you on the trails!
Samantha (Sam) Morrison, from Jacksonville Florida will be joining Cycle 4 Life bike camps in 2021 as a ride instructor. Sam first came to the area in 2016 to attend the bike camp run by Multi Time Collegiate National Championship Coach, Doug Owen. She returned to the bike camps in 2017, 2018 and 2019 with members of her Velobrew junior team. Sam has dominated the cycling in Florida the past years with 5 State Championships. With the growth of NICA in Florida, not only does Sam race high school NICA, but she is also a GRiT ambassador. In August, Sam will continue her cycling career as a member of the Lees-McRae College cycling team. Sam chose to attend Lees-McRae College so she could not only race her bicycle collegiately, but also pursue the bicycle minor offered. For more information on the bike camps go to cycle4life.com. For more information on the bicycle minor go to lmc.edu.
