    Alan Bate completes circumnavigation record: 113 days

    And I, completely by chance, ran into him at the finish!

    I'm bicycle touring in Thailand and happened to be visiting the Royal Palace in Bangkok this afternoon, where his finish was located. I came out of the palace just as he arrived. How cool is that?

    Here's his website:

    Here he is surrounded by reporters:

    Ah, the key to life. Being at the right place at the right time. Thanks for sharing.
    The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me

    You know I was following Alan on Twitter but then he lost his support crew, and the updates became spotty at best.

    He supposedly rode right by my house. (within 2 miles) and I had originally answered his call for support along the way....although I never received an answer back. I completely missed his passage through our neck of the woods, and am completely unaware of anyone who even saw him.

    I am going to chalk this one up to I just have no idea. To me, way too many gaps at this time to get excited about it.

    Prove me wrong, please, because I really was interested in this.
