Cat TrikeCatherine (Cat) Brubaker (TBI survivor) got a black Catrike 700. Dan Zimmerman (StrokeZimmerman, Dan survivor) got a black Catrike 700. They pedaled across America diagonally, 5,300 miles, and it changed each of their lives.

David Figurski (TBI survivor) got a trike, an electric blue Catrike 700, the same model as Cat and Dan’s, but a different color.040915 David 1st Ride Catrike 700

Donna O’Donnell Figurski (copycat) got a trike, too. Though to show her independence, she didn’t get a Catrike 700. She went for the Donna's Pocket 040915Shiny Mango Pocket Trike. It’s cute!

DonnaNow David and Donna want to match Cat and Dan’s GOAL! We want to trike 5,300 miles in the desert. I wonder how long it will take us.

LET’S GO!

  1. That sounds like a fun idea. You know you can go back to our journal https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=Sh&doc_id=13490&v=2Ev and see where we were as your miles add up. I think our first stop was at 20 miles in Bay View State Park

    • Hi Bill,
      I think our miles will add up much slower than yours did. Maybe David and I can add our miles together. Just a “cheating” thought. 😉

      Are you going to keep a journal as you cycle through Alaska?

    • Bill, I look forward to the day when David and I can ride 20 miles. I’m glad to reach 5 miles.
