Gabby Giffords Completes 11-Mile Bike Ride
(CNN) — Former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords completed an 11-mile cycling event Saturday, marking another milestone in her recovery from a 2011 mass shooting.
She was greeted with cheers and applause at the finish line.
Alongside her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, Giffords crossed the finish line of El Tour de Tucson riding a recumbent bike, which has three wheels and puts the rider in a reclining position.
Organizers say some 9,000 people participate in the annual ride, which they call America’s largest perimeter cycling event for cyclists of all ages and abilities
