The Cycling Centre is excited to have a guest Olympic Medalist ride with us on Feb. 1.  Ron Williams, a three time Paralympian and medalist in the Team Sprint and Time Trial, will be riding rollers and answering questions.

When Ron was 15, he was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma and lost his left leg.  Up to this point, he was an avid soccer player and member of the US Junior National Team.  After gaining his prosthetic leg he took up water skiing an the, while at college, discovered cycling.
Ron has competed at the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympics in road and track cycling and is showing no signs of slowing down.  He trains while working full time for Southwire and we are honoured to have him join us.
