Man and his dog travel to Key West to ring in the New Year

Duo travel to Florida on bike

KEY WEST, Fla. - Mike Minnick and his dog, Bixby, made it their goal to ring in the New Year in Key West.

They left Texas in May and then set down the coast starting from Maine and traveling the entire distance on a bicycle.

Mike says it was so much fun, that he plans to do it again, next time using his travels to raise awareness for the Humane Society.

This was the first time in his life Mike ever tried to peddle long distance.

Below are a few photos from his adventures.
