Velonews: Charlie Cunningham Recovering From Head Injury


Jan 3, 2005
Mountain bike pioneer Charlie Cunningham is slowly recovering from emergency brain surgery after suffering a subdural hematoma due to a bicycle crash in August.
Cunningham, of Fairfax, California, is recovering from the injury in a hospital and undergoing therapy to regain his ability to perform basic tasks like walk, talk, and eat. Friends and family are raising money to help him with his medical expenses and the cost of rehabilitation.
He was inducted to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1988 — a charter inductee. Cunningham began building bikes in 1977 using aluminum rather than steel, which was far more common at the time. He also co-founded Wilderness Trail Bikes (WTB) with Steve Potts and Mark Slate.
