On October 28th, Carlos, 35, from Chihuahua, Mexico, will begin a 13 day bike tour from El Paso to Austin, a distance of over 670 miles. So, what's so special about this?
Well, Carlos has no feet. They were cut off by organized crime back in Mexico, for failing to pay a monthly extortion of 100,000 pesos (8,000 USD). With the help of prosthetic feet, Carlos will complete the tour to show people that life can go on even after something as traumatizing.
