North American Finale:
To Be Announced...
Due to the birth of my first child I have no idea when, how or even IF this big Finale Tour will be going down. We may wait a few years. It also depends on whether my book "Live Big. Give Big" gets signed and publishers are down helping with the costs. The North American Finale has a goal to not only ride, experience and share the North American Continent but to bring the inspirational stories of the Peace Pedalers adventure to the people. We envision a exciting tour taking us through over 30 states and 6 provinces with almost 50 presentation stops. We want to share a free multimedia presentation for the communities we are traveling through to continue to fulfil our mission to reduce fear and move the world closer to peace. Depending on the outcome of several pending partnerships and creative projects, we are considering a larger tour of USA and Canada. Assuming it all goes well, we'll do something like this:
Part 2. Surf City to Capital City. 21 Presentation Stops in 18 States: San Diego, Phoenix, El Paso, Albuquerque, Colorado Springs, Denver/Boulder, Cheyenne, Omaha, Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Memphis, Birmingham, Atlanta, Charlotte, Richmond, Washington DC
Part 3. Off to Meet the Neighbors. 8 Presentation stops in 9 States: Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Hartford, Boston, Concord, Portland, Burlington, VT into Canada
Part 4. Canada Tour. 7 Presentation Stops in 6 Provinces Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary & Banff, Vancouver. Approximately 3,500 miles/5500 km.
Part 5: West Coast Revisited: How could I pass up another tour down the west coast?
