Last week, the New York City cycling community came together in a truly inspiring way to raise over $60,000 to help injured cyclist Mark Petimezas recover. On Saturday, October 26th, while riding North on 9W on a beautiful fall morning, Mark crashed badly when his wheel got tangled with another rider’s. Mark went down hard and landed on his head, severely damaging his spinal cord and fracturing several bones. Mark lost use of his limbs immediately after this accident.
As anyone who has ridden or raced with Mark knows, he is incredibly friendly, generous, and always eager to help others. He needs our support to get through the very challenging months ahead. With the generous support from Tailwind Endurance, you can support Mark and participate in fun evening or training! Here are the details:
