The Argonauts: An Exploration of Life

A bike ride across the USA for Alzheimer’s awareness

Dave's Bike Business Card

Dave Adam is biking across most of the country in memory of his father and grandfather who died from Alzheimer’s. Update on the journey: While attempting to cycle the Southern Tier from San Diego to St. Augustine, the pre-desert of California hit 122° F and encouraged him to reroute through the heartland.

Catch more details about Dave Adam’s current adventure as both he and his pound puppy are blogging.

Editors’ Note: One of the reasons, I travel is for myself, another is to inspire other people. I don’t think I can directly influence anyone, but when it happens it’s very fulfilling. Dave emailed me long before his trip. This is what he had to say; it also shows how a journey can grow and evolve over time. Needless to say, if this journey was forwards or backwards on bicycle it is worth of “argonaut” status.

We met in Delafield a few years ago when you signed a copy of your book for me and I count you as an inspiration in getting me to take a cross-country bike ride. I’m planning on going next Sept/Oct and am contemplating doing it as a fundraiser for The Fisher Center for Alzheimers Research in honor of my father who succumbed to the disease almost two years ago. I was thinking of trying to bike in a reverse pedal mode the whole way (so it would be something different and not the same ol’ cross-country trip and so I could say I backpeddled across the US), but am having a hard time getting a reverse/retro pedal bike setup together…and I’m not certain it would work well to cross the continental divide loaded up. Would even a normal bike ride be worthy of an Argonaut designation? If not, no worries. Best wishes, Dave.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
