Double-arm amputee and record-breaking adaptive athlete Hector Picard today launched his Tour to Inspire, powered by Novation, a six-state bicycling tour dedicated to inspiring physically challenged children to achieve their full potential by showing them that anything is possible. The month-long tour during May’s National Bike Month will take Picard through Texas (May 1-6), Louisiana (May 7-9), Mississippi (May 10), Alabama (May 11), Georgia (May 12-15) and Florida (May 16-31).

Along his route, Hector will visit dozens of cities where he will ride with local cycling clubs, deliver inspirational speeches, and present his earned race medals to children at local hospitals. Hector will complete the tour on May 31 with a history-making 100-mile ride down the Florida Keys, while pulling paralyzed legendary journalist Kerry Gruson.

The official kick-off event for the Tour to Inspire took place on April 20 at the headquarters of Hector’s sponsor company Novation Settlement Solutions, for which he also serves as a long-standing spokesperson. A former client of Novation, Hector credits the company for helping him launch his “second chance” at life, which has in turn helped and inspired countless others.

Living proof of the notion that everything is possible, Hector Picard continues to push through all perceived limits and inspire countless people around the globe. Despite losing both arms in a life-threatening electrical accident 25 years ago, Hector has competed in more than 150 triathlons and recently became the first double-arm amputee to complete the grueling 140+ mile Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
