Blind Cyclists

saw this episode of Ripley's last night. It featured Dan Kish, a blind guy who goes mountain biking. Yep, you heard me, MTBing along with no gide dog or anything! How does he do it? He frickin ECHO NAVIGATES! That is so cool. Just like the dolphins and bats. He has some type of sonar capability. Hats off to this guy and his students!
