WHAT: National Geographic-featured adventurer Charles R. Scott will read excerpts from his forthcoming* book, Daunted Courage, and describe how he cycled 1,700 miles of the Lewis and Clark Trail with his 12-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter – including traversing the Rocky Mountains. The event is FREE.

WHERE: Fifty NYC, an Affinia Hotel, 155 East 50th Street (at Third Avenue), New York City

WHO: Charles R. Scott, National Geographic-featured adventurer and author of Rising Son: A Father and Son’s Bike Adventure Across Japan. His endurance challenges have been covered by The New York Times, NBC, FOX News, CBS Evening News, PBS, CNBC, Outside Magazine, The Huffington Post and many other media around the world.
Charles left a 14-year career at Intel Corporation to become an author, adventurer and public speaker. He gives keynotes and executive workshops about developing an adventurous mindset. Charles has cycled over 7,000 miles with his young children across Japan, Iceland, Europe and the U.S., and also serves as a guide to disabled athletes. In October 2014, he guided the first blind runner to cross the Grand Canyon and back nonstop. He ran a marathon at age 13 and, since then, completed six Ironman triathlons and many marathons and ultra distance races. For more details, see: http://familyadventureguy.blogspot.com
