Bride who was paralyzed embarks on cycling trip

An ECU graduate who was paralyzed in a horrific accident during her bachelorette trip is setting out on a biking adventure.

Rachelle Friedman Chapman and her husband Chris are biking from Charlotte to Myrtle Beach.

They started their journey Thursday.

Rachelle made the news in 2010, when one of her bridesmaids accidentally pushed her into a pool, causing her to be paralyzed from the chest down.

Since then, she got married, wrote a book, met journalist Katie Couric and is starting IVF treatments to start a family in California.

The duo plans to bike 60 miles per day.

They are riding for adapted sports in North Carolina Cycling.
