Derek Dorsey is Back on His Bike!

Remember when we told you about Derek Dorsey? He’s a great friend whose lived in the neighborhood for decades.

When we first met Derek at Al-Aqsa Islamic Society in February, he was about to undergo a tricky knee surgery. As we poured through his favorite South Kensington photos, he told us all about his international cycling career and how he was optimistic that he’d be back on his bike soon.

That day has finally come! Despite a long and trying recovery, Derek took his first ride on a ‘real road’ last Saturday, May 28. Way to go Derek!
