After a horrific crash left Danny Chew, 54, paralyzed from the chest down last September, it looked like his cycling career—and his goal of riding one million miles within his lifetime—might be over. But instead of quitting, Chew shifted the way he plans to reach his goal.

The two-time RAAM winner and organizer of Pittsburgh’s famous Dirty Dozen race has swapped his regular road bike for a recumbent handcycle.

You can watch his interview with CNN’s Great Big Story below, and see how he’s riding now:

Chew has been committed to his million-mile goal for decades. Chew, who has been logging his progress since ’68 (he was born in ’62) is only 210,000 miles finishing; now that he’s back on the bike, he seems unstoppable.

“It may take a bit longer than I originally planned,” says Chew, but he’s going to keep chasing the dream.
