George's first DNF

Hi Friends,

This is George's wife, Jessie, writing for George. George was hit by a car during the Endless Mountains 1000k brevet in PA on Thursday morning (within the first 30 miles of the start of the ride). He has broken many bones, which will take time to heal. He has endured 2 successful surgeries and many tests. He will be off his feet and in rehab for quite some time. He has a very good prognosis. We are grateful for the many messages and all the love coming our way. Close friends and family have been incredibly supportive and helpful. No other help is needed right now, but thank you to those who have offered. We may take you up on it later! Don't worry about him. We are in a fantastic trauma center with excellent care. And, I never leave his side!

Love and thanks to all of you.


  1. I was shocked and saddened to read this post, but I'm glad George will recover completely. Keep us in the loop!

  2. George,

    Bad news! We are thinking about you here in NC and hoping for a full recovery.

  4. Crap! I haven't even finished reading the post and I came right to the comments page. I am shocked, George. I don't know how to process this information and I can only imagine how it looks from your end of the 'puter.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. And thanks to Jessie for keeping us updated.
