Who is Lyle

There are many reasons why I love cycling.  I’m an adventure seeker.  I love the outdoors and communing with nature, but it also relieves stress, renews my faith in a new day and allows me to think more clearly. Now that I have the time to do this “bucket list” trip, I want to do even more by making it count for others suffering with mental illness.

Mental health services continue to be a need in our community and a personal passion of mine.  I will remain a huge advocate and this is a fun way for people to support the cause and experience a national tour from the privacy of their own home.  I hope you will consider joining me.

In Good Health,


University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health (UM UCH) President and Chief Executive Officer, Lyle E. Sheldon, FACHE, retired in December 2021, after 34 years with the health system, including 26 as its executive leader. Lyle’s latest adventure, after retiring, was to participate in a cross country bicycle trip to raise philanthropic support for mental health services in Harford County.


The 75-day, 4,000 mile trip took place Mid-May to Late-July 2022, beginning in Washington, DC and ending on the Pacific Northwest shore in Oregon. Lyle completed 100,000 miles on his bike when the trip was complete.
