Richard Gates, 62, who received a heart transplant in 2004 in his hometown of Boston, visited heart transplant patients at Allegheny General Hospital last month as part of his Tour de Second Chance.

He began the tour in 2008 to celebrate his renewed life, to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation and to share his experiences before, during and after his transplant. He rode 800 miles from Cleveland to Boston in 11 days in 2008, a trip that took only eight days in 2010.
