Half-Country Rider Rising from our Wellness Revolution
Doris Grippin was a participant in our 2017 Wellness Revolution program, a program we conduct every year in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont. The goal of our program is to get more women feeling comfortable and confident riding bikes, so as to live a healthier lifestyle. Well, Doris is now going above and beyond.
She’s arranged a temporary leave from her X-ray technician job and made plans for her elderly father to be cared for (Dave is stepping up). The bike is tuned, and has a new Terry seat mounted; with Poron XrD to reduce road vibration and fatigue, the Terry Butterfly Century is the perfect saddle for this ride. All other gear is ready.Will, her youngest son and father of her two grandchildren asks, “Mom, what are you doing? You’re not a biker!” To which Doris replies, “I am now!”
Our 2018 Wellness Revolution is SOLD OUT. You can send an email to email@example.com to get on the waiting list for 2019.

Great going Doris. You can do it. I started biking last May 4th and am just finishing up a Coast to Coast San Diego CA to St Augustine Fl trip with Woman Tours. 9 more rides and I will be there—one day short of my one year anniversary of biking! I trained hard 6 days a week and it is paying off. And this is just a few weeks shy of my 68th birthday. Go Doris!

Wow, Pam, congratulations (a bit early, but you’re almost there!)
Lynda Thompson says
Inspirational. Go, Doris!

Am rooting for you, Doris and for you too, Pam! Way to go! Isn’t biking just the greatest exercise mentally and physically. You meet wonderful people and see so much more on a bike. My husband and I are getting ready to retire and then for us, it will be more cycle touring with no “have to be back to work” requirements. Stay safe and I wish you well.
