A Bicycle Journey Across The USA To Promote Youth Mentoring


I’d like to return you to those thrilling days of yesteryear with the masked rider of the plains, but instead you will have the opportunity to follow the tales of a solitary bicyclist. From April to June of 2016, The Lone Rider and his bicycle, Hidalgo journeyed from the Pacific to the Atlantic , fulfilling a childhood dream. Starting September 5, 2019 a new journey will take them from Canada to Mexico.

Along the way, The Lone Rider will promote youth mentoring and the organizations that support this activity. You’ll be able to read about the organizations, their success stories, and how you can get involved.

A trip like this takes lots of preparation. I plan on staying in hotels, but also welcome the opportunity to stay in people’s homes. I’ve got stories to share and I would like to hear a few new ones to add to the collection. It’s all part of the adventure. I’m grateful to all who have shared their experiences and ideas.

Finally, there will be plenty of posts that will interest those that like bicycling and lots of references to classic TV, movies, and pop culture from the perspective of a baby boomer. Even if you are a little younger, I hope you will enjoy the people, the places, and the food I hope to encounter.

Hope you enjoy. Hi-Ho Hidalgo!Logo-1
