Mike Styer has a bicycle built for you - proceeds go to Relay for Life

“I can’t do a lot, but I can do this and I enjoy it.”

That’s how Mike Styer, who has taught Ada junior high social studies for 14 years, sums up his bike fix-up hobby that sends all its proceeds to the Hardin County Relay for Life.

Styer’s father died as a result of cancer in 2008. After his father’s death, the Ada teacher decided to get into better physical shape. To make a long story short he began entering triathlons.  In those endurance events competitors swim, bike and run.
