In Episode 030 of Bike Tour Adventures, I have the chance to talk with Dan Hurd, a Navy Veteran from the United States that is cycling 25,000 miles around the Lower 48 in the USA. Having now been on the road for 2 years and having cycled 15,000 miles, he is well on his way to achieving his goal. Dan’s story is extraordinary but it doesn’t come without a cost. For Dan, cycling was exactly the therapy he needed. Without it, he might not be here with us. He did this “One Pedal At A Time”.
