Regular Skedaddle customer and local Newcastle-lad Craig Maddison is heading out on an amazing adventure in Vietnam and China and here’s wishing him all the best for this amazing biking challenge!!
Saddle Skedaddle have been helping him along the way, with some advice and some kit but it’s pretty much Craig’s ‘gig’ following a bizarre illness that recently occurred!!
Craig In Peru – On our Peru Sacred Singletrack Mountain Biking Holiday
Craig Maddison was struck down with a rare and extremely deadly virus called Endocarditis (an amazing word to use in Scrabble if you are trying to get rid of your vowels) and underwent a massive operation to repair a valve in his heart.
A mere six months later and with a massive character building scar down his chest, he’s heading east to cycle across China on his single-speeder.
Although he’ll be popping pills and on medication now, it’s not going to stop him from taking on this challenge of his lifetime! Around 2,000kms in 10 days !!
One Speed, One Heart documents one man’s determination to do what he loves, put the past to rest and move forward into the future and all on two wheels!!
Everyone at Skedaddle wishes him the very, very best and a safe journey.
