Cool.... I'll be on the lookout for more of his story.
I have several impressions right off...
Awesome persistence and courage. I can't even imagine.
Himalayas with no gearing? That's a jaw-dropping accomplishment.
On the lighter side...who's minding the farm back home?
Finally...I wonder if there isn't a bit of madness in that noggin... who am I to judge, though, since I would never have the guts to attempt what he's done.
Fantastic. More of us should be as crazy...
Lovely story. The Olympics have been bringing people together, on and off, for over 2000 years. It is clear that the Olympic spirit travels well, spanning such a long period of time as well as spanning diverse cultures.
I googled his name to see if I could find more back-story. Despite the fact that he has been traveling for two years, apparently getting press clippings along the way and arrived in London almost 10 days ago, none of the news I found was older than a day. Our silly media. It's so centralized. The same story, a thousand times.
I'm really impressed with what he did, pedaling over the Himalaya's after being turned back in south asia says a lot about his sense of purpose. He brings 50+ some credit.
Now that's inspiring!

Thats hard to fathom, a man, and not a young man doing such thing. I just can't seem to get my head around it.

Thanks for posting this interesting story.
I nominate this guy to be the "Patron Saint" of the 50+ forum!
I like the fact that he's been able to get by on the generosity of the people he has met on his travels. I believe people sense his genuine Olympic spirit.
I think it's cool that he sleeps in his rickshaw.
