A Satisfied Customer, Cycle Oregon X (1997) :

Mon, 15 Sep 1997


Thank you, Rick, for making my Cycle Oregon X odyssey as painless as possible. This bicycle adventure covered over 500 miles in seven days horizontally and over 25,000 feet vertically. A 100-mile day over the 5,300-foot McKenzie Pass was included. The Rider Handbook recommended that we prepare by cycling over 750 miles during the summer. Unfortunately, I only did 360 miles in preparation and only one of my training rides reached the 73-mile average for the trip. So, I expected some pain and suffering along with the adventure.

When I finally arrived at the registration hall in Nyssa at the eastern border of Oregon, I saw that there were about 20 people offering massage therapy and booking appointments for the coming week. I prefer a deep massage and I picked you because you looked to be the strongest physically.

Little did I know that I had chosen a licensed chiropractor as well.

The first day of was very hot and by the end of the 75-mile I was feeling faint and my legs were sore. That night, you gave me my first treatment. To my amazement and delight, I really didn't feel any great discomfort the next day. My legs just got stronger as the trip progressed across Oregon toward the ocean. You even had me dancing at the end of the 100-mile day. And that neck adjustment you gave me removed the kink caused by my helmet-mounted rear view mirror.

Naturally, I would strongly recommend your services anyone and especially to participants of future Cycle Oregon tours.
