Fawzi Emad spotted Roger Lowe riding an old clunker of a bike on the Ojai bike path back in August 2011.
Lowe, who had taken up biking to improve his health while caring for his ailing wife, was not in great shape. He was overweight and taking medication to manage his blood pressure and cholesterol and was considered pre-diabetic.
