Edward Diller - Why I Ride?

I started the Long Island Bike Challenge (LIBC) because I wanted to combine two great passions in my life, besides my family; biking and health. Personally, my family and friends have benefited from the latest medical research and the outstanding work done at the Northwell Health System. I now thought it was time for me to give something back to Long Island and all its citizens.   It doesn’t matter if you’re an advanced cyclist or you don’t even own a bike. All riders are welcome to join the 2019 LIBC. When you take on the challenge of training for the event, riding in the event and asking people to donate you are part of something bigger than any one of us. You are supporting and helping those who only wish they could ride. Thank you!
