The consequences of injury is a reality we fear in mountain biking, and something we often try not to think about due to the uncertainty of what it could do to our quality of life. With a focus on life after injury, Ride Calendar 2010 tackles this issue in an inspiring, positive manner. The calendar is a non profit initiative from Design by Peppi and features stunning illustrations of high-profile riders who have sustained life-changing injuries doing the sport they love. The website created for the calendar includes a collection of short interviews revealing the attitudes, determination and new experiences of these athletes post-injury.
All profits from the sale of this calendar will to go to Wings for Life and the Brain Foundation, charities which provide funding for research into brain and spinal injury. At $24.95 a pop, this is a small donation to two important causes that make a big difference to the lives of people in our community.
