To those of you who don’t know, there if this guy in America (Elden) who cycles a lot but who carried a bit of weight. So he started a blog to embarrassing himself into losing weight by posting his weight everyday. He also has a wife (Susan) who was fighting cancer (she died last year) so he started to use his blog, a humorous blog, to not only talk about cycling but to raise awareness and money in the fight against cancer. He’s a bit of a hero of mine.
One of his crackpot money raising schemes is the ’100 miles of nowhere‘ ride, where you literally ride 100 miles no where! So that’s 100 miles on a turbo trainer, or round the block or as these guys below, round Regent Parks’ inner ring road.
I’m not going to do it this year, but I have thought about riding the massive 240 meters from my house to the corner shop and back again approximately 285 times to make up the 100 miles.
