There is another man named Dan who is riding a tricycle across a country – but unlike Dan Zimmerman riding his Catrike across the United States for the cause of stroke awareness, this man is riding across Canada on an awareness campaign of Parkinson’s Disease. He is 81 year old Dan Mc Guire, and you can see a newscast of this tadpole trike rider by clicking HERE. By the time you read this, he may have accomplished his goal.
The goal of Dan is to ride to the farthest western point of Canada, the farthest eastern point of Canada, the farthest southern point of Canada, and the farthest northern point of Canada, quite an ambitious overland trike journey for anyone, over 5,000 kilometers.
From the website comes this: An epic ride across the country for an 81-year-old man is bringing awareness to a debilitating disease that he has been suffering with for almost a decade. Christina Marshall-Jeenes was there for the big finish.

PS: I think Dan and Bert ought to partner-up and do an overland journey together! Whatdaya think? Comment here to put the bug in their ears! Old guys rule!
