US Cycling Members for the Sofia Games


Clockwise: Paul Wood - John Klish - Raymonda Yeh - Lindsay Lorenz

We will miss Nick Schreiber as he will not be with us to the Sofia Games this summer due to family commitment.  He has five kids to take care of, but is still active in cycling competition at home.  Our other prime cyclists, Trevor Kosa and Patrick Sluyter, just had to resign the team due to lack of fundraising.  We are very sorry to miss them at the games.

Here, we are proudly announcing the finest USA cycling team members.  The new three riders, Raymonda Yeh and Lindsay Lorenz, will be the first female riders representing the USA cycling team at the Deaflympics and John Klish, who competed excellently at the Tour de Formosa last year, will be his first experience at the Deaflympics.  Paul Wood, a well known rider of international class, will act as a coach and rider for the team.  We wish them the best of luck at the Sofia Games this July 26 - August 4, 2013.

Tour of Formosa at Taiwan


Trevor Kosa - Bobby Skedsmo - Nick Schreiber

The USA cycling team is invited to participate in the international cycling event known as the Tour de Formosa in Taiwan on November 1-10, 2012. The following members of the USA cycling team are:

  • Nick Schreiber, Arizona
  • Trevor Kosa, Washington
  • John Klish, Colorado

    Bobby Skedsmo is the Team Director.  They will have 7 stage races running all around the country.  The committee of the Taipei cycling organization will provide them meals, internal transportation and accommodations.  This type of stage race is excellent experience for them because it is at most sanctioned for the professional racing and international cycling event.  They are fortunate to grasp this great opportunity.  It will be about 100 miles each stage race across the varied terrains.  The first stage race will be a closed circuit around the heart of Taipei near where the Yangmingshan National Park is.

    John Klish of Colarado

    John Klish, 30, was born with bilateral hearing loss, in other words, profoundly deaf.  He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in mechanical engineering while racing on the collegiate cycling team.  However, in October 2005, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, putting both his career and cycling aspirations on hold.  Following surgeries and chemotherapy, he went into remission April 2006, and he quickly picked up where he left off in his endeavors.

    Moving to the mountain community of Eagle in Colorado, Klish worked as a road engineer while honing his mountain bike racing on the area's alpine trails.  His breakthrough season came in 2010, during which he entered 26 races and climbed the podium in 23 of them.  It was during this summer that Klish began competing in triathlons and picked up a new addiction, XTERRAs, or off-road triathlons.  He won the XTERRA National Championships for his age group that year in Ogden, Utah.

    More information at his website. http://www.deaflete.org/index.html  Klish is now with the USA cycling team to the Tour of Formosa this November.

    Smashing Success

    usdca-image-cdw-monterey.jpg - 106454 Bytes
    This 7th Coffee Bike Ride came to the end with a smashing success.

    The California Deaf Wheelers (CDW) (San Francisco Bay area) inaugurated its first "Coffee Bike Ride" at the Iron Horse Regional Trail between Dublin and Danville last April.  After completing the full length of the ride, many participants strongly agreed that it was perfectly designed for anyone.  For the next 6 months, we had a good number of participants each month.  They want more rides next year.

    The dVELO had chatting time at the coffee parlor.

    The dVELO (Washington DC Metro) have promoted many bike rides since its founding and recruited a large number of members for the USDCA.  They have hosted a prestigious bike ride at the Five Boro Bike Tour in New York every year. Last May, a Gallaudet University president rode his bike with students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the deaf community.  A total of 51 participants (45 adults and 6 children) rode their bikes through Washington DC.  The purpose of the ride was to raise funds for the Laurent Clerc Cultural Fund of the Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA).  Waving hands to the dVELO!
