Old Guy on a BikeRichard A. Haag, a 63 year old Veteran, is taking to the streets this month as well. This month, he’ll be embarking on a solo bike ride along the Pacific Coast from Vancouver, B.C. to Tijuana, Mexico. In case you were wondering, that’s 2, 000 miles. For you locals, that would be like leaving Charleston on a bike ride to Montana.

You can read in Hagg’s own words what is inspiring him to take on such an incredible mission in this article published by the Denver Post . After a change in plans, Haag will now be leaving heading out around August 13, 2013.

You can follow his blog or find him on his Facebook Page, Old Guy on a Bike.

Richard, at 63 years young, you are an amazing encouragement that no challenge is too great!

A hundred thank yous wouldn’t be enough for what Richard and Lauren are doing to bring awareness to Louie’s Kids and what we stand for. We are looking forward to following them and hearing amazing stories of their travels.
