Rolling with Rick Hansen

The little white blocks showed all the countries Rick Hansen wheeled through on his Man In Motion World Tour, and that's only Europe!

"Roll On: Rick Hansen Wheels Around the World" by Ainslie Manson is an inspiring book about Rick's amazing feat when he wheeled through 34 countries from 1985 to 1987 to raise awareness for people with disabilities.

We thought it'd be interesting to highlight all the countries Rick Hansen wheeled through on our world map where we recently tracked the journey of Phileas Fogg. It is astounding to see where he's gone with nothing but the power of his muscles and sheer determination.


  1. Quite the feat. Great way to learn Geography
    Now you will have to retrace his step to see all of Europe.

    Love Nanny & Papa

  2. Really great idea!! I'll have to keep it in mind!

    1. Thanks, Katina! Glad to spur some new ideas!
