Gary Johnson Biking from Canada to Mexico

1 gary

Former Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson is currently biking from the Canadian border to the Mexican border in order to test his athleticism. The feat is called the Continental Divide which begins in Banff, Alberta and is completed in Antelope Wells, New Mexico, a span of over 2700 miles.

Johnson’s life leading up to his biking was intense training consisting of “eat, sleep, ride.” While most bikers take around 40 weeks to complete this event, Johnson is determined to finish it in around 30 weeks.

Johnson is a known athlete who enjoys challenging himself having climbed the seven tallest mountains in the world and completing four Ironman Triathlons. The former Governor has also biked 500 mile across New Mexico 17 times, making him quite capable to complete the Continental Divide.

Gary Johnson’s progress on his ride can be tracked at this link. I’m glad to see Gary Johnson continue being the upstanding individual dedicated to challenging himself and creating goals.

Since joining the Libertarian Party in 2016 (after discovering Gary Johnson as a disaffected Bernie Sanders supporter), Luke Henderson has been active in the liberty movement through journalism, and political activism. At the beginning of 2017, Luke had his first piece of writing published by Being Libertarian and quickly became a contributor to the libertarian news site, The Libertarian Vindicator. Through the Vindicator, Luke discovered his passion for addressing critics of the philosophy and bringing together different factions of liberty lovers which compelled him to become an editor for The Libertarian Coalition, a forum dedicated to an open-minded discussion of libertarian ideas from all walks. After many guest contributions to Being Libertarian, Luke was asked to join the website as a contributor, where he writes his column Scoring For Liberty, which discusses sports, politics, and economics from a libertarian lens, and his Educator series that seeks to strengthen libertarian’s understanding of educational techniques and policy to better arguments against public education. Luke is one of the District 1 Executive Committeemen for the Missouri Libertarian party, and the founder of the Missouri Chapter of the Libertarian Positivity Caucus. Outside of politics, Luke is a paraprofessional for the Special School District of St. Louis, a musician, composer, and a loving husband and father.

  1. His bicycle appear to be classic/retro. Friction clamp brakes. Ease of maintenance or if it works don’t fix it?
