Katie Spotz and her partner Sam Williams planned a cross-country biking trip to raise awareness and funds for those in need of clean drinking water. When Spotz shattered her pelvis during a crash while training, her plans quickly changed.
Not wanting to quit after months of preparation, she decided, with permission from her doctor, to use a handcycle.
Last Saturday, Katie Spotz and her biking partner Sam Williams set forth to break a world record by biking 3000 miles in less than eight days for Ride4Water — that’s 1.3 times as long as the Tour de France and in one-sixth the time. Their journey, with the help of Levi’s, also aimed to raise money for Blue Planet, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing safe drinking water to those without.
Here’s the video that shows some of what Katie endured on her ride:
Levi’s is also donating $1 for each tweet that includes the #Ride4Water hashtag for up to $5,000 in addition to their sponsorship.
