Cool You may or may not be interested to know..

Does anyone recall my friend who was biking across the world???

Well, he's now in South Thailand

When he reaches New Zealand he will have covered 13,000 kms (8078 miles).

His next plan is to rollerblade the length of Australia (new world record).

So funny

That's awesome. A friend of mine decided to bike from Vancouver to Mexico. People thought me meant ride his motorcycle but nope. He meant his pedal bike.

I'm so jealous of his adventure.... If I had the balls to jack it all in, I'd go.... but I could never leave bodhi and the welsh wonder behind!!!

That's so awesome!!!! Any idea how long it will take him to finish it??

My boyfriend leaves in June for Race Across America - Oceanside, CA to Anapolis, MD and his 4 man team plans to do it in 6 days!!! They're raising money to help wounded vets, by the way, if anyone is interested el boyfriendo pedals with one leg...

He's planning on doing the great divide next year... if there's any way I could get in shape in time I'd looooove to go along ! I wonder if we could take Rage...

Think he's biking to Kuala Lumpur then flying to New Zealand, can't remember how long he said it would take. He's not trying to do it in any time frame!

He's raising money for action aid, but failed to do any PR before he left (despite me trying to tell him!) so hasn't raised as much as he hoped he would.

He's hoping the next idea will raise more!!
