Athlete of the Week | Ryan St. Lawrence

Always an honor to have #highfivesathlete Ryan St. Lawrence visiting the CR Johnson Healing Center!

Ryan just sent it from Boston to Colorado to pick up his newly adapted sprinter van then drove the van from Colorado to California to get a workout in at the CR Johnson Healing Center!


“Picked up the rig at @my_tourig yesterday. Beyond psyched to have this project complete and with how the conversion turned out. 🚐  #vanlife in full effect. First stop Truckee, CA for a couple days at the #crjohnsonhealingcenter.” – Ryan’s Insta account @good_n_you

Ryan broke his back during a fall while riding with friends at the Highland Mountain Bike Park in New Hampshire. The fall resulted in T4 and high C vertebrae fractures leaving him paralyzed from the upper stomach down.

Ryan is dedicated to getting back on his feet in some capacity. Mountain biking was and will always be his passion, and he aspires to one day pursue the sport again. Ryan will ALWAYS strive for an active lifestyle, even if it’s in an adaptive fashion.
