PORTLAND, OR The Portland State University (PSU) Cycling Club is
pleased to announce that Jeremy Robbins will be racing his handcycle
in the Northwest Collegiate Cycling Conference (NWCCC) during the 2009
season. Jeremy Robbins will be the only handcycle racer in the NWCCC,
which consists of 22 universities and colleges from Washington,
Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.

Jeremy raced bicycles from 1994 – 1996 in California, where he
represented University of California, Santa Barbara. In 1999 Jeremy
became quadriplegic when he broke his neck in a mountain biking
accident in Portland, Oregon. In 2005 Jeremy returned to the world of
cycling on a handcycle, and reported that he finds “It to be
challenging and inspirational, while reminding [him] that [he] really
loves ‘cycles’, both bike and hand.”

Jeremy is a graduate student in rehabilitation counseling, and an
intern at the disability resource center at PSU. He will represent PSU
in the time trial section of several NWCCC collegiate road races this
season. Jeremy said “My hope in joining the PSU team is to bring
awareness of the sport, that campus recreation is open to all, and of
disability in general to a larger population, while having some fun in
the process."

The first NWCCC Omnium be hosted by Oregon State University and
University of Oregon and will take place March 21st and 22nd near
Eugene, Oregon. Please see
