Bike shop owner semi paralysed after crash

Tom McCurry, owner of Two Wheel Transit in Johnson City, Tennessee has been severely injured in a crash while descending a local mountain. While entering a turn at high speed Tom's front tyre lost air, sending him straight across the road into a ditch as his head hit an embankment. He has been hospitalised for two weeks and is making slow progress in the Vanderbilt Rehab Hospital in Nashville, TN. However, McCurry has no health insurance.

McCurry has been a popular figure of the local cycling community for 25 years, and friends and customers are trying to keep Two Wheel Transit open to ensure some income, but greater financial support is required. Anyone who would like to help is encouraged to visit the site established by the North East Tennessee cycling community, which has raised about $4500 already.
