Teacher who suffered severe head injury all set for 1000 mile cycle

Teacher who suffered severe head injury all set for 1000 mile cycle

A former school teacher who suffered a life changing head injury two years ago is set to embark on a 1000 mile cycle.

Nathaniel Spring was diagnosed with concussion and later developed post-concussion syndrome after falling while he was on a school trip to Dirleton Castle in 2017.

As a result he has been unable to return to teaching, and experiences memory loss, sensitivity to light and noise and severe fatigue.

However he is now all set to embark on a 1000 mile cycle around Scotland in a bid to raise awareness of debilitating head injuries.

The 50-year-old, who is from North Berwick, has set himself a challenge of cycling for 40 consecutive days – starting in his home town before heading north to Ullapool, to the Western Isles and then home.
