Alex Toon Case study
“Don’t you worry; this injury won’t stop me”
Prior to my accident, I was a very active teenager, just like any other 19 year old. I went to the gym 4-5 times a week, had a physical job and loved socialising with friends. My passion was mountain biking and I spent a lot of time and money on my bike and cycling equipment.
Me and the guys would plan our mountain bike sessions around our other commitments – it was a great way to spend time with my mates.
Sunday 16th February 2014 was just like any other Sunday. In my cycling gear, I loaded the car up with the bike, spare inner tubes, drink etc, and met up with my mates. Off we went on one of our favourite routes through woodland, little did I know that this would be the day my life would change forever.
