My name is Billy Allred. I am a bilateral BK for the last 12 years due to a car accident. I am 33 years old and as an EX-State Champ in wrestling I try to stay in shape. Now seeing as I cannot run very often. I Mt bike 3-4 days a week around 20 miles per trip. I started riding Mt bikes again about a year ago when a friend gave me an old Trek 800(no suspension). Road that thing into the ground. I just got my new Trek 3500 hard tail( but with front suspension) What a difference! A friend gave the link to your site and it gave me tons of inspiration. I wanted to see if I could send you some pics for your site and maybe become a member. This is the first place that I have seen amputees riding bikes. It lets me and others know that we are not alone. If you know of anyone wanting to ride in the Hampton Roads area please let me know. I go often and hard!
