This great, happy video of a 24-hour endurance bike race in the Zuni mountains of New Mexico was created by Ken Holmes. True to the vision of race organizer & ME/CFS patient Claudia Goodell, the race and large campground community (now in its second year, with a national pack of 324 riders) is a fun way to raise money, present a positive image of ME/CFS, and include patients/ families who are able to attend and enjoy.
The title of the race, now an annual event: 24 Hours in the Enchanted Forest – A Race to Solve CFS.
“As a former mountain biker, I felt sad not to be able to ride anymore,” says video artist Ken Holmes, “but I also felt a sense of elation at watching so many healthy people learn about CFS, contribute to research, and ride for those of us that cannot.” (You’ll see him on a mobility scooter in a split-second cameo appearance right at the end.) To all the organizers and participants we say, well done!
