I ride for my dad-my best friend and the guiding light in my life. I've been blessed with the privilege of being such an amazing man's daughter. My dad made his way from a small town in India to a PhD in Biochemistry, an award-winning career, and a marriage, family, and many, many friends that radiated love.
My dad, Dr. Mohammad Asghar, lost his 3.5-year battle with lung cancer on February 2nd, 2019. Every step of the way, he defied his prognosis and refused to live life any way but fully. He found strength in his family, and we found strength in him. This ride is a testament to his courage, bravery, and the immense love in his life-both given and received.
I'm riding for you, Abba. See you in Alaska.
