    Sheldon Brown would be proud.
    Now, if he can do it when it's below zero every day, perfect.

    I wonder if he could keep up with the dogs over the full ~1000 miles / 10 days?

    Must be fun to be that fit!

    Do I have to be impressed?
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    I'm guessing lack of deep snow was a big factor. On the birkie trail the skiers easily are faster than the fat bikers over a similar distance.
