When one of your buddies decides to pick up riding bikes at age 49, you hold space for them. John’s buddy Onur recently began riding mountain bikes. Onur had a heart attack in 2020 and had to get his life in line with longevity. He’s changed his diet, his lifestyle, and picked up a mountain bike. John and Onur’s friend Dave took him on his first singletrack ride in Patagonia and the lightshow was awe-inspiring. Here’s to friends helping friends, friends!
