Iron butt

If you have ever ridden a mototcycle for more than 400 miles a day you will know how impressive (and a little crazy) this accomplishment is: An American motorcyclist made the 5,632-mile trek from the northernmost road in Alaska to the southernmost tip of Florida in 100 hours and set a transcontinental record certified by the "Iron Butt Association" of bike enthusiasts.

"I’m a little tired ... a little bit bruised," biker Gary Eagan said by phone after finishing the journey on his Ducati Multistrada.

Yesterday in Denver, it was our annual "Bike to Work Day", where we are encouraged to ride our bicycles to work. Not being one to give up an opportunity for a free breakfast and a t-shirt, I rode my bicycle 17 miles to work. On my way home, at about mile 9, my tire went flat. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a repair kit, but I did have my cell phone, so my wife had to pick me up...

At any rate, I’m discovering today about the accuracy of the title of Dr. Schramm’s post.
