Bionic Ron

"We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic ..[cyclist] ... Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster."

Ron crashed on Wednesday evening June 22, 2011 from road debris of an orange pylon near the electronic sign on Glendora Mountain Road. After his outer skin healed, he upgraded his carbon components to titanium. If you look closely, Ron had the word Lightspeed etched into his new part.

His shoulder felt stiff and the collarbone area pulled, however he doesn't have much feeling in the skin on the shoulder as the nerves were cut. Physical Therapy for the next month. His arm is getting stronger daily and he feels better. Today Ron completed 21 minutes on the spin bike. Soon it will back on the road.
