Taking a break from our regular programming to congratulate the Toronto based cycling team known as “True Patriot Love” for (1) attempting and (2) completing and (3) placing second (34 minutes behind the winners) in “The World’s Toughest Bicycle Race“.
The Race Across America – starting in Oceanside California and ending in Annapolis, Maryland. Think of it! A group of eight “regular guys” (well perhaps a bit on the fit side) cycled non-stop across America and completed the race in under 6 days. This is faster than some could drive the distance. This is faster than (given the state of Air Travel and time to get to the Airport and through security) that some could fly the distance (well, not really). In any case, a truly amazing achievement. Few people even knew that this was going on. Anyway, spread the word and take a moment to retweet the following tweet.

And hey, if they can manage to do the race, surely you can manage to donate a few dollars to their cause here!
