 Interview
 
 National Bicycle Greenway  
From her home in Lumberton, North Carolina, Maria Parker, a mother of four young adults, talked to us about a race she is doing across America for her sister who has terminal brain cancer. Called RAAM, it is the worlds toughest bike race, far more challenging than the Tour de France. Just qualifying for it, much less finishing it, is a challenge of unspeakable proportion.

Nor is Maria doing this for fame or for the bike company (Cruzbike) she owns with her husband and a partner. In the words ahead, you'll hear from a woman much humbled by the challenge she has ahead of her and by a sister who maintains her optimism for others despite the illness that has overcome her.
NOTE: Maria won Female Division!
