Are you on the ride of your life?  That is the journey we dive deep into on this episode and talk about the bike ride John took with his wife and 15-month old son across the country.

In 1983 John and Berti Gronski and their 15-month-old son Stephen set off on a bicycle tour across America. There were no ubiquitous mobile phones, no internet, no email, Google, or social media sites.

The closest thing to connectivity was a payphone along a dusty road. John pulled Stephen in a bicycle trailer that resembled a pioneer’s covered wagon.

They traveled over 4,000 miles from Washington state to Pennsylvania. The trip was filled with adventures and enduring leadership lessons.

He tells his story, the lessons in fatherhood that trip taught him and if you feel you haven’t been living life on your terms, this episode will ignite that fire and inspire you to take action on your dreams.
