    A REAL mileage goal

    How about doing something like this? Saw it over on another forum and just had to share. An amazing story.

    Link not working. Try the one Below

    How can anyone ride over 80,000 miles in one year? That is a double century plus every stinking day!!!!
    Even the official record of 75000+ would require a double century every day.

    Thats 219 miles per day for 365 days. Although impressive, I cannot bring myself to belive it.

    Yes it is very hard to believe. Wonder what convinced Guinness guys to go with it? Perhaps they were drinking a bit too much of their yummy product the day they reviewed it.
