DONOHUE BICYCLE SERVICE,
For eleven years, the garage of the Donohue home was the location of the
2009 UMCA 12-Hour Championships (8/30/08) at age 76 187 miles--1st place in over 70 age class (no competition)
2010 UMCA 12-Hour Championships (9/4/10) at age 77 187 miles--1st place in over 70 age class (no competition)
2011 Hopkins Picnic “102 Valley Bicycle Tour,” Hopkins, MO (7/9/11) at age 78—4th place in over 60 class (there was no over 70 class)
46th Annual Bob Cook Memorial / Mt. Evans Hill climb (7/23/11) at age 78—This was my first race to come in last. I was in the 65+ category, and was only in CO two days before the race and wasn’t acclimated; I had to take frequent rest stops above 11,000 feet (The finish was at 14,127 feet.), but at least I finished. As I was approaching a stop for a break on the way down, I slid forward off the saddle and onto the top tube, lost control and took a header. I suffered a concussion and spent 24 hours in a Denver hospital. At least I learned what helmets are for!
2012 Hopkins Picnic “102 Valley Bicycle Tour,” Hopkins, MO (7/7/12) at age 79—2nd place in over 60 class (there was no over 70 class)
2012 UMCA 12-Hour Championships (9/1/12) I competed in the 80 and over category. Daughter Kathleen, from Boulder, CO, flew in to ride this race with me, and I had a delightful four hours, but at about 11:50, I slipped on wet asphalt going under 5 mph approaching the checkpoint at the middle school and suffered a concussion. I was the fourth person to fall at that spot. After my fall they changed the course. Daughter Diane’s last entry on my race log at 54 miles indicated that my moving average was 16.4 mph–not bad for an 80-year-old.
This ended my years of competing in endurance races, which began in 1996, competing in five 24-hour races and eight 12-hour races. Thanks to my support crew, daughter Diane and son-in-law Kevin McGrew. I couldn’t have done so well without them, not to mention driving me to and from the race sites. Diane is a nurse, and a rub down felt great in the middle of the night. I recall that more than once, at the end of a 24-hour race I couldn’t walk by myself; I could only walk with one of them on each side of me.
