Bio: My name is Dan Ott, I am the Founder of 'Our Heroes, Riding for the Fallen'. I ride solo multi-day long distance to raise funds and awareness for the 'Scholarship fund for the Children of Fallen Service-members' in association with 'Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund'
I started 'Our Heroes' in 2010, and have since ridden over 34,000 miles and raised over $27,000 for the fund.
I am 53 years old and married to an incredible woman; my soul mate, Lori. We have been together for 22 yrs. I have 4 great kids; two of which are adults and the other in High school. They are great kids, with good heads on their shoulders, I am a very lucky man to have the family I have.
I have always loved physical challenges and setting of a goal and the journey in achieving it.
I have found Long distance touring meets all of those attributes. I also wanted to do something for our Service-members, I feel the only reason I have been able to enjoy the things I do is because of their sacrifices over the last 200 plus years. When I ride, I always ride with our Heroes in mind.
I hope you enjoy reading some of the journals I have posted. For information on my gear and bicycle see journal titled; 'The start of Our Heroes; Riding for the Fallen'.
