Legally blind dad will bike for cancer benefit
Every week day, Chris Smith rides his bicycle to and from work, 24 miles roundtrip. That’s to Waltham from Dedham, year-round, rain, shine, and even snow. It’s an impressive feat, but add the fact that Smith is legally blind and can only see with peripheral vision, and it’s an extremely brave feat. “Or stupid,” says Smith, 35. But his commute is nothing compared with the fact that he is gearing up to do the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge — again.
