Crossing Tibet In Winter

Quote:
'Dead' UK cycling adventurer alive
A British adventurer whose death was announced on his own website has said rumours of his demise had been "greatly exaggerated".

Edward Genochio, 28, was feared missing as he attempted what is thought to be the first winter crossing by bicycle of his chosen route over the desolate Tibetan Plateau.

Concerned friends contacted the British Embassy in Beijing after a Norwegian cyclist posted comments on Mr Genochio's Internet blog saying he had probably died from exposure and altitude sickness.

My only question is - - Why?
Different strokes, I guess.
Glad to see he is still among us.

To be honest, I'd kind of like to see the place in winter, too. But I don't think I'd do it on a bike. Things are just too far apart.
