Doug & Linda Bird 2014

Doug and Linda Bird have made Waverly, Iowa their home since they were married 48 years ago.  It is here that they raised two children and have been blessed with five wonderful grandchildren.  Doug is a retired Building Official and now enjoys spending time word working and riding.  Linda is a retired Office Manager and enjoys reading and traveling.  In 2013 they become Winter Texans and enjoy escaping the cold Iowa winters.

We first learned of the ride for the Relay in an article published in Wing World and had wanted t participate for several years before joining in our first ride in 2012.

Linda is celebrating 9 years as a breast Cancer Survivor.  Doug was diagnosed with CLL 3 years ago which, after treatment was in remission until its re-occurrence this spring, again treatment was successful and it is in remission.  We have lost many dear friends to cancer and felt that Rodger's efforts to help find a cure was something we wanted to participate in.  We began riding in 1981 and during this time have toured all the Canadian Provinces and all 50 states.  Many of these trips took us on portions of Route 66 but we had never had the opportunity to ride the entire route.  The friends we made and the camaraderie on this ride is something we will never forget.

We Ride to Live.
