Why interactive? Because through Facebook, email and comments on the Arctic Ride For Dreams web site I was challenged to visit places, attain goals, complete tasks or volunteer with charitable organizations to raise funds and awareness for noble causes.

You did the easy part:

Challenged Me… & Pledged to Donate to a Charity… When the Challenge was Complete.

I did the difficult part:

Completing the goals and riding 22,500 miles to the Arctic Circle and back in 127 days.

You followed the fun via GPS tracking of my progress, the Arctic Ride For Dreams web site and Facebook.
