Our most recent Friday Debrief contained an entry about the Pan Celtic Race’s addition of an adaptive category for next year’s event. Reacting to this, a reader pointed out a series that’s currently unfolding on Youtube. Cyclist and personality Francis Cade and wheelchair racer/disability activist Justin Levene are currently cycling unsupported across the US and documenting the trip in a series titled 2 Bikes 1 Wheelchair 3000 Miles Across The USA. Francis is pedaling a road bike and Justin is using a hand cycle and towing his wheelchair. They are currently somewhere in Texas on day 26 of their trip. The series is wildly entertaining and documents their encounters with places and people they meet along the way. Watch the first episode below and scroll down to learn more about the cause they’re supporting and how to find more of their videos.
Justin and Francis are cycling across the USA to raise money for Get Kids Going! In their words, “Sport and being active is an integral part of both of our lives, but for children and young adults with impairments the access to being active is filled with barriers. Get Kids Going! Provides funds to help with the costs of the bespoke equipment needed to partake in sport. This is not just about being active, but is an essential part of physical and mental wellbeing.”
You can donate on behalf of Justin and Francis’ efforts here and follow their journey at youtube.com/c/franciscade.
