After having planned the journey, The Rider was made aware of a yoga instructor course being held in Ecuador. The Rider, being an avid practicing yogi, decided to partake in the one month training course. Consequently, the motorcycle journey will be on hold, as The Rider takes on another journey to practice his yoga.
The Rider is a Canadian who has for several years wanted to travel by motorcycle to explore the people and places of this world. This trip is dedicated to the Cure Scleroderma Foundation and none of the costs associated to this journey are being charged to the foundation. The Rider is not receiving any payments from any donations made, as the donations are made directly to the Cure Scleroderma Foundation.
