Bicycling is a key part of my personal cancer battle plan. Research shows that exercise helps prevent cancer and cancer recurrence. So, I'm all in.
The W&OD bike trail is a fantastic ride. You can start at the trailhead in Shirlington and ride the trail all the way to Purcellville - about 44 miles. Or you can catch the trail at any number of spots along the route. I rode 20 miles of the trail on Independence Day. Fun ride.

If you are a cancer survivor, I'd love to hear what about your battle plan.
