Lopez, who said he is traveling exactly 69 miles each day said his trip is still not over -- he is planning to complete his 5,000-mile journey at Pee Pee Island in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The cyclist said he had been planning to participate in several bike tours this year, but they were all canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said he decided to take on the "meme ride" as a way to raise money for the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, which provides humanitarian aid to the war-torn country.
