Keeping Cool with a Disability

Keeping Cool with a Disability

I've been on this planet for 31 years and have been a quad-amputee for just about the same amount of time. Growing up, and even now, I've always been more sensitive to the heat than others. I tend to sweat more than most able-bodied people that I know, and I don't wear a jacket nearly as often. In doing my research for this article, I've learned that my experiences with temperature are common among amputees.

I was hooked from just the subject line: "The bike trip to miss." After all, it's not every day that you're offered to go on a five-day fully guided bike trip exploring the trails of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Tim McGrough, the program director for Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP) organized this trip with Western Spirit, a Moab-based bicycle tour company to take seven select off-road handcyclists on their first-ever guided off-road handcycle tour.
