Tonawanda Woman Learning to Bike for Ride for Roswell
News

TONAWANDA, N.Y. - Once you learn to ride a bike, you never forget, or so the saying goes.

But what if you never learned in the first place?

Pedaling can be a bit nerve wracking for Lisa Johnson, 36, who is just now learning how to ride a bike.

"When we were kids we didn't have bikes until we were older, and at that point, I didn't feel like I wanted to risk hurting myself doing it, so I never learned," said Johnson.

For Johnson, there's no better time than now and no better reason.

She, her sister, son and boyfriend formed a team called "Stick It to Cancer," and they are riding eight miles in this year's Ride for Roswell to raise money for Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

The opening ceremony is Friday, June 22, and the ride is Saturday June 23.
