Father Breaks Cycling Record To Honor Daughter's Fight Against Lupus
Paradysz sets 416.09 miles as new 24-hour ride record at PA Velodrome
"I wanted to do something that required mental toughness and physical endurance," explains Paradysz, "because that is what it takes to live with lupus every day. I did this to honor my daughter and the other brave people with lupus."
"This was an amazing accomplishment and a testament to a father's love for his daughter," said
Paradysz, age 47, cycled as a teenager. But, until he began training for the 24-hour ride attempt last summer, he had rarely ridden a bike in 25 years.
