Welcome to Why I Ride– Dave Schweikert’s home for endurance bicycling rides that support and raise funds for World Bicycle Relief. (click the link to donate!)
In spite of the global pandemic, 2020 was an amazing year featuring many miles (17,000!) of roundabouts and rivers, mountain climbs and majestic sunrises, and more. Subscribe to the Why I Ride YouTube Channel to see videos from some of the many places the bike carried Dave last year!
Tour de Roundabouts 2020– our first attempt at a video, so please forgive the lack of music!
River Tour 2020– Christmas vacation and more riding the Ohio & Mississippi Rivers
2019 was a record breaking year: a wacky though unofficial world record, and then joining 24 other incredible athletes to set a Guinness World Record!
