My name is Ryan Logan and I am a fourth-year Biology and History major who also happens to be pre-med. I know, it doesn’t make sense to me either. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and I have been a lifelong Longhorn. So far, I have convinced one of my younger brothers, Nick, to join me here at UT and I'm still working on Jack. I am an avid sports fan and a wannabe athlete, so when I’m not drowning in schoolwork at the library you can find me trying to catch a quick pump at the gym or drowning doing laps in the pool. I am always looking for the next mental and physical challenge so I am extremely excited to be biking from Austin to Alaska next summer to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer!

Why I Ride
My calling to Texas 4000 came after I had the opportunity to intern at the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institute last year. During my internship I had the opportunity to meet so many fighters and hear their stories of strength and resilience as they refused to let cancer steal their lives. I heard from family members and loved ones about how fast and drastically life can change with a cancer diagnosis. I have seen first hand how this terrible disease does not discriminate and shows no mercy. Children’s lives are stolen before they can grow up and people lose their parents and loved ones every day. I am riding for a world where cancer can be prevented, caught, and treated earlier.
I am also riding for the members of the medical community and everybody who has dedicated their life to fighting cancer. Seeing the compassion and drive in the doctors and staff during my internship has motivated me to devote my time and energy to this important cause.
Over the next eighteen months in Texas 4000 my teammates and I will work every day to spread Hope, Knowledge, and Charity in the fight against cancer. Our journey will culminate next summer after we have ridden our bikes 4500 miles from Austin to Alaska.
I am riding for my Uncle Bob, my Uncle Pete, my great-grandparents, Nico, and all the LIVESTRONG fighters and their families!
