A message from James :
“My name is James, a person in long-term recovery. I struggled with alcohol & drug addiction for the better part of 2 decades. Jails, institutions & near death experiences seemed to be the only life destined for me. I saw no way out.
July 1, 2015 was the day I surrendered & admitted complete defeat. In March 2017, I buried one of my best friends due to an accidental overdose, so I decided to ride my bicycle from WPB Florida to Philly PA for an event that I was already scheduled as a guest speaker. 1,300 miles, 18 days. My last ride from Ohio to Portland, Maine & back to Ohio was 2,700 miles, 42 days.
My upcoming ride set to leave May 26th from Florida to L.A, 2,800 miles in 6wks and will be ride #3. My rides aren’t just about raising awareness with the addiction epidemic that is taking place. It’s to show that people who once struggled with Alcohol/Drugs/Mental health, indeed do recover. I carry with me full 30-day scholarships into treatment each ride that I go on. Last ride I had 5 & used all of them. This ride I plan to have double that in hopes to reach just one person. We do recover!
PLEASE SHARE: Hottest recovery T-shirts are fresh off the press. Please help support my upcoming Ride for Recovery! $25.00 covers shipping also. Thank you!
