In just 24 hours, Martyn Ashton raised £29,000 for rehabilitation, through a vigorous GoFundMe crowdfunding campaign.
The famed trials rider was paralyzed back in 2013 during a stunt, which has since required ongoing treatment and rehabilitation.
Ashton says the money raised from the campaign, will go toward buying additional equipment to adapt to his home.
While he initially wanted to raise £7,000 on a hand bike or physiotherapy equipment to “stay fit in 2016”, he said he would now rethink after raising £29,000.
“I’m very positive and enjoy the challenges of the life I have,” he said.
“I think it’s a bit crude to think of how to spend it yet, I’m just enjoying the response.”
Ashton became well-known for his Road Bike Party video series.
