Rob Jones is an inspiration to all. Rob was a Marine in Afghanistan when he lost the lower part of both legs to an IED. When he came back to he US he was determined not to let the loss slow him down. It took him 10 months to get to where he could ride a bike. And now he is completing a 5000 plus mile journey across the US to raise awareness and funds for veterans.
We were fortunate to have Rob stop in Long Beach one day before he reached his final destination in Oceanside, just outside of Camp Pendelton. Here is a link to a few photos from Rob’s visit to Long Beach and the beginning of his penultimate day of riding across the US.
Thanks much to the Maya Hotel for hosting Rob’s stay in Long Beach and to LBPD for the escort though our great city.
This is one more example of how Long Beach is a Great Bike Friendly City.
