What is adventure? Adventurers are like explorers. You could say an adventure is poorly planned and you got more than you bargained for; or, you could say your playing with the mysteries of life and pushing the boundaries of what it means to be human. These are stories of Scott’s adventures through life, like riding a bicycle around the world, being the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina and — hopefully — many more, big and small.

As the Honorary Cultural Ambassador to Argentina, here I am sharing my story with an elementary school in Corrientes, Argentina, the same place I got stuck in the mud for 5 days.
By the time most of you receive this news, I’ll be on the plane to Argentina. I have one of my biggest opportunities ever—while traveling during a time of war I always thought of myself as the bicycling ambassador, and now I’ve been honored by the US Embassy in Argentina as the Cultural Ambassador for the 2011-2012 school year.
This summer I did a mini bicycle trip from coast to coast in Wisconsin, which means from the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan. With more than 15,000 lakes, it’s an interesting fact that Wisconsin’s has more coastline than most states.
Once again I have applied to be a roommate at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Above you see what would be my bedroom. I also imagine my bicycle, the bicycle that went around the world, occupying a very important corner, along with some maps and photos.

One of the most popular questions people continue to ask me is: “What are you going to do next?”
As a post world tour honor, me and my bike got to occupy first, second and third place on the podium at the Downer Classic race at the Tour of America’s Dairyland. I also had the chance to share my story with the crowd.
Today’s interview is with Scott Stoll, author of the book Falling Uphill, founder of the adventure travel community The Argonauts, and perpetual traveler. He’s currently cycling around the world.
His assistant said, “I can’t believe you rode a bicycle around the world and are complaining about the sun in Milwaukee.” For the record, I’m burnt! But it is funny how every one eventually says, “For a guy who biked the world, you [insert insult] !”
Interview of the man who bicycled the world on WGN TV Chicago.
Here’s a Skype interview done by Rick Owens, a guy that is truly passionate about everything bicycles. With my experience in the world of websites and video, I can attest that he puts far more effort into these videos than is apparent.
The Falling Uphill Book Tour continues. Currently, I am in Wisconsin, my home state. I have been really impressed with the hospitality and friendliness. It’s so refreshing not to be lost in the shuffle.
