You helped raise £1360!
Thank you all very much for the support with creating a racing version of the Berkelbike! 33 supporters raised £1,360. This will be going to towards a portion of components required towards finishing the racing version.
I've tried to outsource as much custom work through various supporters since the start of this crowdfunder. I have been successful in reducing the total cost. However, there are still areas which are of concern to finish the race bike and actually get the required support to compete in the event. So it's not over yet.
Most probably I will have to re-evaluate my own financial position and decide what the best way to move forward is since a lot has changed in 2 months. Otherwise I'm working hard behind the scenes with logistics, dev processes... and most importantly training everyday.
I'm still determined to win Gold for the purpose of improving FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) cycling which has many benefits for the Spinally Injured. This will in turn give the career boost needed to explore other non-invasive recovery techniques and work with those who wish to beat paralysis.
Keep in touch, I occasionally update blog posts on bionicbeer.com and I'm on Twitter @bionicbeer. The Cybathlon will be live streamed May 2nd Qualifying and 3rd Main Event, but if you want to travel to Zurich to watch, you can purchase tickets here.
Thanks again and best wishes!
