Austin man attempts world record ride for two charities

World record attempt

Austin (KXAN)- Austin man, Carl Davies, is about to take off on a four week vacation… during which he’ll ride 22-thousand-five hundred miles on his motorcycle.

The route crosses just about every state in the lower 48. And it’s going to require an average 800 miles of riding a day.

Why? It would set a world record. Davies likes a challenge.  He’s raising money for two local charities.

Carl Davies has lost two friends to ALS – also known as Lou Gherig’s disease.  This effort will benefit Max’s Ride for ALS… as well as LifeWorks, which helps youth and families gain self-sufficiency.

If you’d like to join his send-off – meet Davies at Cowboy Harley-Davidson on South I-35 Friday at 8:45 in the morning.
