Larry Walsh  

U.S. Army Veteran, Cyclist, Author & Mental Health Advocate

Larry Walsh is a US Army veteran with almost thirty years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. In 2018, Walsh left the corporate world to cycle into the heart of America and it changed his life forever. In his first book, # 1 New Release "Suit to Saddle", Walsh chronicles his story of triumph over adversity cycling the 3,120-mile Southern Tier from California to Florida. He uncovers a side of himself that he thought was long forgotten - one filled with true grit and determination. In 2019, the allure of the road called him again. He completed the Trans Am Bike Race cycling 4,200-miles from Oregon to Virginia. Only 263 solo cyclists have finished the grueling unsupported cross-country trek. Long-distance riding began as a way to find purpose after being dismissed by corporate America.

In his second book, "Forty to Finish", Walsh continues his journey, inviting readers along for a cyclist's love letter to the American road and an exhilarating demonstration of the capabilities of the human spirit. He has appeared in podcasts and live broadcasts including; Morris Sussex Sports NJ, We Get Outdoors South Africa, El Grupo Norte Cycling Michigan, and several library talks.

A family man, a veteran, a basketball enthusiast, and a dreamer. Walsh is the proud father of three beautiful children, and lives in Morris County, New Jersey with his wife, Kelley.
