Kellie Morris did her first multiday, fund-raising bike ride in 2002 after a co-worker dared her to take up the challenge – the seven-day ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. In 2010 Kellie was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease: Mixed Connective Tissue disease that left her so weak she could barely dress herself. Through medication, dietary changes and exercise she was able to recover much of her strength.  Kellie does most of her local trips on her trike including shopping, running errands, attending fitness classes, visiting friends and even riding to church. In May 2013 Kellie became a certified bicycling instructor via The League of American Bicyclists LCI program. She now teaches throughout Long Beach and Los Angeles, writes the “We All Ride Bikes” column for PedalLove.org and is the co-founder of the brand new Carson Bicycle Coalition.
