Touring Legend Ian Hibbel Killed by Car in Greece

Ian Hibbel, 74, one of the most well-traveled cyclists in the world was killed last week by a hit and run driver in Greece. During his touring career he pedaled the equivalent of 10+ times around the equator.

Yeah, it doesn't seem to show up in a quick search. Probably cause the title is "Hibel/something".

Anyway. Just tryin' to be helpful. Didn't want folks to miss the earlier one.
