His name wasn't Chewbacca was it?
Sounds like he's training for the Paris-Brest-Paris.
Another 'quiet achiever' as Karen was. No inappropriate comments or photo's on his post. Just Respect. Inspirational !
Karen would be proud as punch
I currently use the stories I'm reading in the book "Tour de France" by Graeme Fife. The 1926 Tour was ridden over 5700 kms in 17 days, on 15kg bikes, carrying all their gear, on treacherous roads in the mountains at night where if they had issues with their bike they had to fix it themselves.
