    I posted this already in the LD Cycling Forum, but I thought some folks here might enjoy the site as well:

    I'd agree with that statement. Brevets and long events are totally different from Forrest Gump going around the world twice. It's the difference between doing a long ride on a weekend or taking two months off work. If you want a page devoted to the kind of riding you're doing, well... it seems you have a web site that's available.

    Pprayes I thought about you yesterday as I met a guy on what I am pretty sure was a EZ Speedster headed down high way one about fifteen miles south of Daytona Beach.

    If you meant "... to make your fellow passengers CIRCUMSTANCES better." Fair enough.

    If not, how can a minister of the gospel be as arrogant & prideful to suggest anything within themselves can make other people better. Any true believers I've met have always given the kudos for helping people to their Lord.

You would have known it was me since I was on a blue recumbent with a lot of gear on the back of the recumbent and I had a square orange safety sign fastened on the back with a graphic of my ministry logo with a cross on it and my website URL. The mileage listed on my sign would have been 167,000 miles. I'm over 176,000 miles now.
    You were with in a few miles of me when you got to the main stop light in New Smyrna Beach.At One and Canal St.

    We don`t intend to move.We about decided this is our last stop on this earth.We have good friends good neighbors and good weather.Now and then a hurricane comes by and puts a few trees in the house but other than that every thing is great.Come on down.

    It is in your mail box.

    I recently completed a 5 month long tour through 27 states in the USA with a distance of 9,000 miles. A coast to coast trip for me is a short trip.
    You might find something you like at this site http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/ Just scroll down to Journals by Category and click on recumbents. For example http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?..._id=2358&v=1GU Being the off season there's not many touring riders out but there's a load of archives to read and thousands of great pictures. Although it's not a bent, Joff Summerfield's world tour on a high wheeler (Penny Farthing) is a good read.

    Hey Bob,

    crazyguyonabike is a great site... I've been reading for years. Lots of interesting long distance tour journals on there.

    A few good ones I've read lately are:

    - a tour from California to Malaysia via Europe, Turkey and a number of the 'Stans.

    - a tour from Alaska down to the tip of South America

    - a tour from Inuvik to Seattle

    It is a great spot to drop in and read about other people's cycle adventures...

    Thanks for that bent tour link I'm going to have a read and forget about the cold weather outside...
