Somehow he hit me slap bang in the middle of his car. I was spun onto his bonnet and then was thrown off into the dirt. My worst nightmare came true and I now battle a fracture to my spine, torn muscles in my right leg, chipped tooth and concussion. Its no cliche but my helmet saved my life.
My bike is also a complete write off. That's £4000 worth of kit sitting all mangled and disfigured. This is not how things turned out in my story.
I am determined to carry on though. The world record may be out of reach but raising money for kids in Africa is still high on my priority list.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me in these dark few days. I still have 13000 miles to cycle and I'll be damned if I dont finish them.
