HELP ME TO SUPPORT THE PARALYMPIC ATHLETES

PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !


Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !


London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !


Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.


Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.


SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.


Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .


Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .


NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .



Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .


You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

2010 PROJECT HANDBIKE/TRICYCLE TOUR DE FRANCE RELAY RACE




.....MY 2010 PROJECT:

PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED RELAY CYCLE TEAM AT TOUR DE FRANCE

Each day we would start near or at the “official etappe depart” with a tricycle or/and hand bike(see banner for picture) for the maximum publicity and after 5-10kms pass the baton to a tandem/road bike for the next kilometres where the baton would pass to the next riders. Before the feed station we change back to the start team of hand bike/tricycle, again ,for maximum visibility through the feed station then for 5-10km as conditions allow. With a flat arrival back to the starters or all the team on their bikes. Mountain arrivals would require the strongest riders as the support by vehicle would not be there due to road closures. At these finishes it may be possible to use a scooter or motorbike as support vehicle.

Apart from the disabled/physically challenged riders it would require able bodied volunteers to ride and assist in the organising of all logistical activities . The press would be all over the story so there would be need for a laison team there as well as people for camp organisation and buying in of supplies.

It is apparent that the numbers would quickly make for an unworkable unit unless all involved work together. The benefits to all would be enormous as I am sure that they would become personalities in their own sphere of influence. This is why personalities would have to be taken off and left at the door so to speak so as to interface with each other successfully.

WHATEVER THE MIND CAN CONCEIVE AND BELIEVE THE BODY WILL ACHIEVE

WHO OF YOU OUT THERE ARE UP FOR THIS CHALLENGE??
