Three times around the world

Yep, the distance I have covered since I started riding just over 15 years ago is three times around the world based on 24,900 miles around the equatorial circumference.

And now Machka and I really are on our way around the world by plane, train, automobile, boat, feet and bicycle.

Both have been good journeys so far.

Congrats to both of you! Join the club!!!
Currently we have almost 240,000 miles of riding TWOgether on tandem bicycles since 1975;
+ more miles on singles since the early '70s.
Pedal on!
