Dave Conroy


Canadian Dave Conroy is riding his bike around the world. After getting tired of a life stuck to a computer screen, and watching several friends suffer from heart attacks, he decided to make a big life change.

“I decided to ride my bike around the world to see smiles, not emoticons, and to force myself to get out of any shell that I may have,” Dave writes on his blog, Tired of I.T.

“Any misconception of cultures, geographical areas, and hardships need to be reworked. I realized this means going back to basics – meaning, focusing on 3 important things – food, water, and shelter. Once I’ve mastered those, then I’ll re-enter into ’society’ again.”

Dave first traveled across Canada and the United States before heading to Africa in late 2011, on his way to Morocco.
