Many of the Willesden CC will recall Meurig James, who moved to America in 2009. His cycling has gone from strength to strength despite a very serious hit and run incident in 2011, which left him with a broken knee cap, a broken ankle, rib fractures and serious internal bleeding.
Today Meurig will be on the start line for the Race Across America, a 3000-mile coast to coast ultra endurance race across the USA. Here is a short posting from his Facebook page and details of how we can follow his progress –
“Ladies and Gents,
At 12pm (Pacific Standard Time) Tuesday June 11th I’ll begin the most epic bike race – Race Across America. I’m not going to be able go access any of my own Facebook or email etc. But the crew will be keeping on top of bikesbelongacrossamerica.org Facebook page. Would love to hear any words of encouragement as I make my way east.”
