Rich Dixon took off from the Headwaters of the Mississippi Monday morning on a "Journey of Hope."

The Colorado man will travel 1,500 miles pedaling a custom-made bicycle using only his arms.


Dixon, a retired educator who lost the use of his legs in a fall from a ladder, is going to follow the course of the Mississippi River through the heartland of the country in a physical and spiritual journey he is calling the "Rich's Ride: Together on a Journey of Hope."
