Rose Marie De Louise
At Mr. C’s, we are always happy to see Rose Marie walk in the door. Rose, as we all call her, was born August 12 1960 and is a champion in many ways.
A breast cancer survivor since 2003, Rose loves to ride her bike—a Cannondale Super 6 with a custom pink and white paint job, mavic wheels and SRAM red components.
During the spring and fall, Rose will ride to her bicycle to and from school where she teaches physical education to grades kindergarten to 5th grade. For fun, she rides with the Staten Island Bicycle Association doing on and off island rides. All totalled, between riding to work and riding for enjoyment, she averages about 250 to 300 miles per week.
When it is raining or too cold to ride, Rose runs about 6 miles a day. In fact, she got so good at running that she won the Staten Island Advance Newspaper Triple Crown in her age group 2 times!
She loves her new bicycle and is grateful for all the help and wonderful service she received from Mr. C’s Cycle in Brooklyn.
