Hugs and High5's '14

 
In 2014 -'15 David ventured to Australia for his first Hugs and High-Fives Tour. 

Continuing his singular mission to inspire by engaging people, he not only pedaled  from Sydney to Melbourne making stops to volunteer at charitable organizations along the way but also challenged  himself to  hug and high5 1000 people in a month!!

And did it:)

The planning, the organizing, the volunteering, the challenge to hug 1000 random people and all of the other details that had to be in place before one pedal stroke occurred - made this was one of the most special trips that Big Dave has done. 

This trip was also special because - even though he's done a great deal, bike companies haven't been receptive to his story - and this was the first time a company stepped up to give him his first sponsored bike.

Thanks Specialized.
