The injury laid the foundation for the rest of her life.
While she was recovering Judy started working toward a masters degree.
Then in '87 she left California to become an assistant dean at Liberty University.
But another obstacle was around the corner. In March of '90 she was laid off without notice.
Judy took it sitting down, on a bike. Her physical therapy had progressed from three minutes on a stationery bike to setting a World's Record in April of '91 of peddling more miles, 3000, than any other person.
It took seven days and eight and a half hours.
From there she took the opportunity to cycle across the country with a charity group.

Now the spokes of the ministry reach all over the country.
She and her group spend three months sharing their faith in GOD from the seat of a bike.
Wheel Power starts peddling from San Francisco on May 22nd and cruises through Lynchburg on August 12th.
