Passion Outside of Practice
It's our pleasure to highlight a Lancaster City & County Medical Society member's "passion outside of practice"
in each issue of Lancaster Physician. Beyond their commitment to health care, LCCMS members have many
other talents, skills, and interests that might surprise you. In this issue, we're thrilled to feature Dr. Philip Bayliss
from LGHP-Family & Maternity Perinatology and his passion outside of practice.

Philip M. Bayliss, MD

who did not have the ready access to care and
information that he felt he was privileged to
have through my profession. I chose to actively
participate in his endeavorĀ as much as possible.
That meant buying my first bicycle since high
school and learning and training to ride long
distances in only seven weeks before joining him
on the road. That summer, I rode approximately
1,500 miles of his 4,100-mile trip. He started
a not-for-profit charity, Bike Towards the Cure,
which raised over $18,000 during the ride. Most
of the donations were small dollar amounts from
the people encountered on the ride route.
The initial cross-country ride was during the
summer of 2010. A small group of local friends,
Eric, Rachelle, Kay, and Chris, taught me to ride
that first year and then joined me to organize
and run a local ride under the Bike Toward the
Cure banner.

3. Why is this pursuit special to you?

DR. BAYLISS AND SON PHILIP

Passion Outside of Practice:
Bicycling

1. Would you briefly describe your
passion outside of practice for those
who might be unfamiliar with it?
Outside of my medical practice, I enjoy being
outside riding bicycles, including road and rail
trail circuits.

2. How did you develop an interest
in your passion outside of practice?
My interest in bicycling was spurred on by my
son. After a diagnosis and surgical treatment
for cancer, he awoke in the recovery area
and informed his mother and myself that he
was going to ride a bicycle cross country to
raise monies for cancer research and support
programs. He wanted to help others with cancer

PHYSICIAN

Cancer has directly affected all my children,
my parents, and many close friends. My
medical practice involving high-risk obstetrics
infrequently has to deal with cancer directly,
so through bicycling I am able to give to this
important cause. Riding has brought me
personal satisfaction and a sense of well-being,
which keeps me energized to keep up with a
busy practice.

4. What else would you like readers
to know about this?
Our local Bike Towards the Cure ride, held
annually for 5 years, now has raised over
$60,000 for local cancer programs. I am in
debt to my friends for their support and all
the riders and sponsors for their participation.
The web site for Bike Towards the Cure is www.
biketowardsthecure.org for those interested.
