Here’s another item to add to your bucket list. Walking on top of a frozen lake is a simple and fun adventure many people can do near their home.
These are stories of Scott’s adventures through life, like riding a bicycle around the world, being the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina and… hopefully, many more, big and small. I invite you along for the ride to discover, learn and become a better person and make the world a better place.
I’ve done many things, but I don’t hold any world records until now. I am the first person to ever cross state lines by riding a bicycle over a river!
I have had many impromptu interviews all over the world, including the Fitness Guru on Sirius Radio and Around the World Radio.
If you didn’t know, I rode a bicycle around the world, and the most popular question was: “How did you ride a bike across the ocean?” My favorite joke was to say: “I just put extra air in the tires.” Now the joke has come true.
When my girlfriend found out I qualified to be a Martian astronaut she wasn’t supportive. “Honey, just think, we could have the first Martian babies ever!” and other funny things people say.
705 Mars astronaut candidates remain for the Mars One mission to colonize Mars. Scott Stoll is one of them. It’s a one-way trip.
In case you didn’t hear, I made round 2.5 of the Mars One project and my quest to be the first person to bicycle two planets. Listen to my NPR interview.
I am one of the 297 people selected from the United States, half which are woman and about 75 in my age group. I am excited to be part of this! Even in a thousand years everyone will remember the first trip to Mars.
This may not be what most people would expect, but it is a personal story about what impressed me about the character of a man that is sure to be legendary. During my travels in South Africa I visited Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned and did hard labor breaking rocks for 23 years.
SCOTT STOLL BIKED around the world, cycling a whopping 25,742 miles in four years. He wrote about his continent-hopping bike trip in the book Falling Uphill.
I’ve been told many times: “You haven’t cycled the world until you’ve cycled RAGBRAI.” And, now I know why!
Scott applied to go to Mars and help establish a colony in 2023 — and so can you! Here is my application letter and video — it’s about inspiring humanity.
