Brian Hahl, Stockertown cyclist who raised multiple sclerosis
awareness for 20 years, died

The Express-Times

Brian Hahl, a 50-year-old teacher and cyclist from Stockertown, died
Thursday afternoon after suffering a heart attack during a bicycle
ride.

Hahl, who had been a science teacher for 27 years at Hillsborough
Middle School in Somerset County, N.J., was preparing to participate
in his 20th consecutive bicycle run to raise funds and awareness for
multiple sclerosis.

Jim Durham, a teaching colleague and friend who planned to ride
alongside Hahl, said Hahl's teammates will now be riding in his
honor.

"He completely inspired me," said Durham, 41, who has multiple
sclerosis but rode 50 miles alongside Hahl last year.

"He pushed me to ride when I said that I couldn't do it," said Durham,
who plans to ride 150 miles this year. "He knew that I could do it,
and I'm so grateful to him for that."

Hahl was planning to lead the Lehigh Valley-based team MS Milestones
in the National MS Society's annual PA Dutch 2009, a July 18-19
cycling event expected to raise $325,000 to battle the chronic
disease.

Linda Ruzanski, a former teaching colleague of Hahl who has multiple
sclerosis, said Hahl looked forward to the event every year, and
worked hard to raise money and awareness to fight the disease.

"He was just a good man with a good heart, and his students absolutely
loved him, just loved him," said Ruzanski, 58, of New Hope, who knew
Hahl for 24 years. "He will be missed in more ways than one."

Hahl was also a member of the local Lehigh Wheelmen Association and
rode for 14 years in the Pennsylvania Perimeter Ride Against Cancer in
honor of his father, who died of cancer.

When Hahl first started riding in the National MS Society's PA Dutch
event, he did not know anyone with multiple sclerosis, nor had he even
ridden a bicycle seriously before....

Default Another Mountain Biker Dies from a Heart Attack

There is NOTHING in that story that indicates a mountain bike event.

We've taken up a collection for you to get a brain transplant to double your
IQ. We are looking for the donor chicken now. We can't find one smart
enough.

Mike collects frequent flyer miles even though he claims that
airplanes are "just "convenient" for people who don't care
about the environment."

We don't know all of the health conditions of the rider either.

Just a joke - I could be wrong, but 2 X 0 = 0 :-)

Take care.

Default More LIES from Michael Vandeman


An incorrigible liar and flame baiter.
Yes he is a hypocrite.

And that's the reason he tries to spread his toxic crap here.
All serious organizations and publications ignore him.

Kill any more cats lately MikeyBoy???

"This is the true joy of living. This being used for a purpose
recognized by yourself as a mighty one. This being thoroughly used up
before being thrown on the scrap heap. This being a force of nature
instead of a feverish, selfish little clod, full of ailments and
grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to
making you happy." G. B. Shaw

Do you recognize that quote Mikey I-only-pretend-to-have-a-Phd.
Vandeman? You quoted it. Maybe you should abide by its wisdom. Or
maybe you can just improve your reading comprehension to help avoid
shooting yourself in the foot that always seems to be in that
exaggerated mouth of yours.
