Hit from behind leads to a long road to recovery

Long time cyclist Pearson Constantino was preparing for his life long dream of cycling across this great land of ours when he was hit from behind by an SUV. He suffered crippling, life changing injuries to his femur, back and brain.

In spite of his disability, Pearson felt motivated by his pain and serious injuries to campaign for safer roads and to get more people on bicycles by riding his bike across the country. The ride he and his brother Pete took was documented. To complete the production of a feature length video, Constantino and his producers need another $12,000 that they hope to raise through an Indiegogo campaign.

I don’t normally post information about ’cause’ rides and fundraisers for personal crusades, but this one campaigning for road sharing resonates with me. To learn more about how you can help, visit The Long Bike Back Indiegogo campaign page.
