OGDEN — Bob Quick has always loved riding bikes, and over the years he has amassed a collection of them in his garage. So when he had a massive heart attack in 2004, he wasn’t going to let it keep him off his bike.
As a matter of fact, it motivated the 53-year-old Roy man to attempt something difficult — riding his bike from coast to coast.
“I wasn’t going to let it slow me down. I want to show the people that saved my life that I am living and not just sitting on my couch,” he said.
Quick is dealing with advanced stages of coronary artery disease, a hereditary heart problem.
