Inspirations: Darby Roach’s World Tour at 62

Darby Roach is a 62 year old with great spirit!  Here is what he has to say about his world trip

My Bicycle Trip Around The World

Darby Roach

In May of 2012, I will get on my trusty Trek bicycle and start a journey around the world.

I don’t know exactly when the idea took hold; it simply occurred to me one day that for the first time in my 61 years, I have no responsibilities other than the paying of bills.

I am selling my house and car and selling or giving away most of my possessions. I plan to store a few things; my hiking and ski gear, precious family photos and papers, a couple of posters.

The only other things I will own will be my bicycle and the gear required for my trip -— all of which will fit in my panniers.

I have no definite schedule or route. No goal other than to live simply and maybe learn a little something along the way.

My trip could take up to 3 years. People have asked me what I plan to do when I return.

I don’t have an answer for that. I’m making this up as I go along.

One thing for sure, you can follow my trip on this blog. I’ll be posting new stories and adventures along the way. I welcome your questions, comments and advice, so stay tuned!
