Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
This is pretty impressive given that these guys are not cyclists.
Shearer was a big soccer star, but he took this on after a month's
training and doing a max of 50 miles in a day.
Wow, max of 50 miles and then jump into 170 miles/day. However, soccer players are typically well-conditioned athletes with strong legs, which is a lot different than a couch potato brushing the chip crumbs off his potbelly and getting on a bike.

Shearer has been retired for a while, and even in his prime he wasn't exactly a midfield workhorse type.
