In the last year, the cycling world has started to get to know St. Petersburg resident Leo Rodgers, which is great because there probably wasn’t anyone else in the local bike scene who didn’t know about the paralympic cyclist’s tenacious, transparent and positive approach to pedaling through life. In May, Rodgers appeared on the cover of Bicycling magazine, and a few weeks after that he was gone to Costa Mesa for a new cycling-related job and a chance to grow his Leo Rogers Foundation. Our loss is California’s gain, but Rodgers made an impact while he was here. @slimone1000 on Instagram —Ray Roa
