Ride4Water - Something Greater
Ride4Water is a very inspirational and powerful campaign sponsored by Levi’s. Basically what Ride4Water is, is a bike ride across the US raising money for Blue Planet, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing safe drinking water to those without.
This video highlights strong clips of the bikers, Katie Spotz and Sam Williams, riding in the non-stop cycling race starting on June 18th.
Not only are they trying to race across the US, but also to attempt to break the world record which is to bike the 3000 miles from Oceanside, CA to Annapolis, MD in 8 days.
How it works is that one athlete will be biking while the other rests and eats in a RV and every 2 hours or so, they will switch. This routine will continue all through the day and night which means that they will not have a proper night’s sleep until they finish the race.
However, a week before the great race, Katie broke her pelvis and despite her injury, she still persevered and continued to follow through with the race. Instead of biking, she was forced to use a handcycle.
