In her younger days, Cyndy Noel loved to take long-distance bike rides with her brother. The ride required perseverance as there wasn’t always a long downhill stretch where they could relax and coast. Cyndy discovered the similarity between those rides and the journey of caring for her husband when he had Alzheimer’s. It too required persistence and determination. What was next could not be predicted and at times it was necessary to stop and deal with the unexpected events. Through it all, Cyndy did her best to stay balanced and keep pedaling no matter what happened.
