Way to go, photographer-cyclist, 1227 km. is quit a feat. Somehow, I just can't imagine awakening some morning and saying, 'I think I'll go for a bike ride, Paris/Brest/Paris should do it, Honey, will you have breakfast ready for me when I get back?'That's inspirational. As a matter of fact, it made me question my couch-potato ways. So here's what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna go for a 1228 km. bike ride. And I'm starting today!And I'm going to have a special dinner celebration when I'm finished. Which should be just in time for the U.S. national day of independence celebration, July 4th, 2008.At 4 km./day, and taking three holidays off, that should do it.I wonder what the photographer will have to say when the old fart beats his record for distance. (He'll probably decide to roller-blade around the world...vertically, pole to pole to pole, or PPP, as it's known in the sport).
