Where’s Garry

Where’s Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 currently riding his bike at the moment? After spending a week cycling around Brittany, France, in early May, Garry returned home for a series of hospital appointments and tests. (Hence the short tour.) He had hoped to only be home for a week or two before heading off again. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be.

One of Garry’s hospital appointments was for an MRI scan. He’d been experiencing a lot of neck pain over the past few months. Unfortunately, the scan showed Garry had a degenerative disease (Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy). A serious condition that causes narrowing of the cervical spinal canal, leading to chronic spinal cord compression and resultant neurologic disability.

Despite this devastating news, Garry still hopes to get away on his bike. But he won’t be embarking on any major tours until he learns more about his condition and how it might impact his life. But he’s still hoping to go away on shorter trips over a few days or more. You can find out where Garry is at the moment and how his Myelopathy affects him and his cycling by subscribing to his email updates or following Garry on social media Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest.
