Mary Kay Engel of Brighton will embark on a 3,000-mile bike ride next month in support of the Rocky Mountain Stroke Association. Engel has been cycling for about four years.

It is 8:30 Saturday morning.

Mark Kay Engel is fidgeting with a battery operated bicycle reflector in the kitchen of her Brighton home.

Her Carbon Fiber Ruby Pro bike sits patiently in the hallway. The tools of this demanding hobby lay behind her: gloves, helmet, sunglasses, an iPod.
