On September 1, Connor O’Reilly set off from Falmouth, MA to ride his bike across the US, ending in Santa Monica, CA, to demonstrate the power and potential of living sober. Throughout his ride, Connor will be raising awareness about the crucial role that mindfulness and exercise can play in recovery as well as raise funds for WellStrong — a fitness and wellness community that has tremendous success helping those struggling with substance use disorder find new meaning and direction in their lives.
WellStrong would like to take a moment to highlight the generous work of this local business. Not only has Corner Cycle donated much of their services because they believe in our mission and supporting the community, but they’ve always done it with a smile and friendliness second to none. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and the work done is always very timely and prompt.
If you’re looking for a bike, a repair, or a tune up, we can’t recommend Corner Cycle enough! Check them out on Main Street Falmouth or their location in Osterville! ... See MoreSee Less
