Paul Staso has canceled his transcontinental-campaign,P.A.C.E. Bike 2007, and is flying home today. Staso had a difficult decision to make while fully cognizant that he might be letting people down. His latest online journal entry read, "That won't be a popular decision with everyone, but then again most people who will judge my actions have not experienced the enormity of crossing a continent solo and unsupported." Staso dispelled these external pressures by listening to his heart. He wrote, "I cannot point to one particular thing that is telling me to abandon this trek. However, I do know in my heart that I am taking the right action." He will safely return to his wife and four children, at peace with his decision. The series of unfortunate circumstances that plagued Paul's campaign included an accident, storm and near-robbery. Read Tuesday's P.A.C.E Update for more details.
