TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - We brought to you Monday night a man on a mission to wheelie ride across America to raise awareness and support for people who are mobility challenged. 

Well, World Record holder, Kurt Osburn, is currently in Lake City and will be riding all the way to Jacksonville by Wednesday.

We spoke with Osburn Monday night and he told us that dedication for riding is much more than breaking records. 

"We're really just trying to bring awareness to these causes," said Osburn. "This isn't about a world record, this is about helping other people." 

Osburn's trip ends at the Cocoa Beach Pier on Saturday, December 1, where he'll meet some of the kids involved in the charities he's been riding for.
