As a child, Milind Patel used a road bike to commute everywhere. But as an adult, he didn't use it for almost 25 years, until Team In Training's (TNT) America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride inspired him to try biking as an endurance sport. During the training and the event, he had the chance to meet many members of TNT and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, people who have become like family to him. With their encouragement, he went on to win a "Triple Crown" as a triathlete.
Says Milind, "TNT's mission and the team's selflessness are two major motivational factors for me. I feel lucky for all the wonderful moments I shared with so many while taking part in all the events."
