The end of leisure

Painting woodwork, dining, a BBQ in a pretty rural area, working on manuscripts and back to work, practical life taking over are reasons enough to have slacked.

I thought you might enjoy the before and after 1227 km in 67 hours and 21 minutes. The proud cyclist was in the fastest 10 %.

  1. 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).
