Just heard an interview on the radio
(CBC's Basic Black http://radio.cbc.ca/programs/basic_b...s/current.html
with a woman who is cycling solo from Alaska to Argentina, although she did hook up with
others for some sections at least. She's made it to San Salvador, which is halfway, 12,500 kms.
She is stopping to recover from surgery, due to a broken collarbone, involving bone grafts, plates, screws etc.
She apparently did the last 1000 km's with the collar bone broken, before going back to
Quebec City for the surgery.
She's doing this to help the Children's Wish Foundation, and has so far raised over $10,000.00.
