“Do Your EPIK”, in 1980, was not just a 4,400-mile bicycle ride. It was a journey of self-discovery, extreme challenge, three mountain ranges, headwinds, rattle snakes, blistering heat, and wonderful friends met along the way.
Ridden by John LaMacchia, a man who at the age of 22 embarked on this challenging trek over 40 years ago with a good friend, and now, is ready to take it on again. This time, with a deeper perspective on life and a desire to encourage others, John will face this challenge again with a new motto: “Finishing Well”.
But this journey isn’t just about him. It’s about inspiring others to lead a healthy lifestyle and make a difference in the lives of those in need. It’s about pushing beyond one’s limits, having courage in the face of fears, and discovering the true limits of human grit.
The ultimate goal of this journey is to inspire others to set and achieve their own epic goals, to push beyond their comfort zones, chase one’s dreams, and “finish well”. By demonstrating that anything is possible with determination and vision, John hopes to empower others to make positive changes in their own lives, to find their own purposes, and to make a difference in the lives of those around them.
