We are honored and proud to welcome Duke Myers to the Ride For Music 2021 Cycling Team, along with Kevin Lilly. The team riding from Tampa to Nashville will consist of Kevin and Duke, as well as a third rotating visiting cyclist.
Duke and Kevin met on a cross state ride from Tampa to Jacksonville in early 2021 with a few other riders from the Tampa Bay Cycling Community. An instant friendship was forged and they have been riding together for the last several months continuing their training regimen in order to make the trek to Nashville.
A little about Duke, he most recently was a college administrator and is currently on a much needed sabbatical and looking for adventures and charitable efforts to support while remaining active. Duke is an avid outdoorsman, especially fishing and most recently endurance cycling. A major point of connection for Kevin and Duke, was that he spent 10 years as a radio DJ in the Southeast further cementing his place on the Ride For Music team.
"Ride for Music was an absolute no brainer for me... I knew it was a cause I could throw my support behind I have enjoyed every minute of it. I'm looking forward to riding to Nashville this Summer and helping provide support any way I can to those in
the music industry who have been affected due to Covid-19." - Duke Myers
