Today, we have a guest post from Simon Wood, author of Terminated, which has a great 4.5 star rating (34 reviews). If you like mystery/suspense novels, make sure to check this one out!
I’ve been a keen follower of Morgan Spurlock’s Failure Club project, where individual give themselves a do or die goal. I set myself a goal. After I came off my bike last year, my health took a big hit and I had to re-examine a number of things. I didn’t want to accept the possible outcomes. I wanted to bounce back. So one of the goals I set myself to regain my cycling mojo. It was something I wasn’t sure was possible. To prove that, I set myself the goal of competing in a big, timed ride, which is now upon me. A week on Saturday, I’m taking part in Levi Leipheimer’s Gran Fondo. Around 7,500 people are taking part. I rode in this event a couple of years and it’s a wild ride, so I’m looking forward to it, even if it does have some chest busting, knee breaking climbs.
Seeing as I’m riding for me, I decided to ride for others. I’m riding on behalf of VeloStreet’s Cycling Initiatives Program, LiveStrong, Forget Me Not Farm and local school programs. VeloStreet’s Cycling Initiatives Program and LiveStrong are particularly important to me. VeloStreet endeavors to improve road safety for cyclists and as someone who has been injured in car-bike crashes, any improvement is a good one. Prostate cancer is something that runs in my family so LiveStrong is an important cause. So far, I’ve set myself a target of $1,000. In order to get there, I’ll donate the royalties from my thriller TERMINATED to anyone who purchases the eBook today.
