Lee explained that he was about five weeks past a seven-week stint of chemotherapy that had wreaked havoc on his system. The treatments had left him too weak to stand at the corner, in fact too weak to drive out from his home in Woodland--his son had driven the Bike Van.
But ... Lee's spirits were good. He was happy to be there, happy to see the riders, happy to be part of yet another bike event.
I left Lee with wishes for a full recovery. I hope to see him again next year at the same corner ... maybe even dancing again.
