In 2002, at 45 years old, Ray Madaghiele pedaled his vintage bicycle 3,369 miles in 70 days from Phoenix, Arizona, to Ground Zero, New York City—supported by his wife, Lyn—to honor the heroes of 9-11 and share a powerful message of hope and healing with thousands of people across America.
Ray of Hope: Inspiring Peace honors the heartwarming stories people shared, and it reveals timeless principles that can help each of us be more peaceful and joyful no matter what is happening in our lives and the world. This book will inspire you to live your dreams and be a “ray of hope” in the world.
Ray Madaghiele is a Human Transformation Engineer with over 25 years’ speaking, teaching and business experience. He is co-founder of the Transformational Learning Center, whose purpose is “Inspiring Hope and Awakening Greatness” in individuals, organizations and communities.
This Cycling for Peace adventure inspired Ray and Lyn to simplify their lives. They sold their house in 2006, purchased an RV, and currently operate their businesses while living their dream—traveling to beautiful, uplifting places while sharing a message of hope as they roll.
“I have read many books in my life, and this is by far one of the finest and most rewarding I have ever read. It is a book that not only challenges us as individuals to think about where we are today, but also where we should be going in the future. I truly wish all of the people in the world could read Ray's book so that all of us could live with greater love and peace.”
