Pedal Forward by Trey Hall
Author Trey Hall has overcome life-threatening injuries and offers inspiring thoughts for living from that experience in his new book.
What started out as a typical morning bike ride ended in a gruesome head-on collision with a car. Hall and his friend and office neighbor, Ken Calwell, were riding their bicycles on Greenwich Road in Wichita (Kansas). They soon collided head-on with a 1978 Olds Cutlass driven by a sleeping woman who suffered from narcolepsy and was on her way to work. The speed of the car and bikes at collision was estimated at 75 miles per hour.
Hall and Calwell suffered devastating injuries of shattered bones and ripped joints, but both survived after numerous surgeries and physical therapy. Drawing on what happened, as well as his many years of marketing experience, Hall developed 10 life lessons that inspire a positive life whether on a bike or not.
The lessons are simple and grounded such as ‘Focus Keeps You Whole,’ ‘Celebrate The Pain,’ ‘Communication Helps Avoid the Potholes,’ and ‘Find the Joy.’ The lessons can be applied to all areas of life – home, work and play.
The story is told in an appealing manner and focuses on many aspects of Hall’s life, not just bike riding. The book is written in a storytelling manner that makes it easy to read with a smooth, flowing style.
PEDAL FORWARD is an empowering story of overcoming extreme measures to find happiness and success. This is a motivating story whether or not you enjoy riding bikes.
