    9,000 miles, or almost 15,000 kilometers (I assume you meant 2014 :lol:).

    Even if I were retired and had nothing to do with my time, I would not want to bike that much. I love riding, but those kinds of miles would make me not love it.

    Naw. I meant 2015. I figured I'd give you time to plan for a 76K year in order to break the record. Even at your pace you couldn't hit it by the end of December 2014.

    I also wouldn't want to spend that much time in the saddle or doing any one thing. However, one of these days I will attempt to find out how long I can ride in 24 hours -- just out of curiosity -- but that'll be next year.

    On that note, Jens Voigt is attempting to break the Hour Record tomorrow. You're probably aware already, but I believe CyclingFans will be updating links re: where it can be watched. SHUT UP LEGS!!! http://www.cyclingfans.com/hour-record/live

    :doh:

    Seems obvious to me now. I guess I've been a little scattered this week. :o

    That's an awesome idea! Hrmmm..... :spaz:

    Yep, can't wait! Love Jens. Odds are strong that he'll become the new record holder, but I don't think it will last for long.

    I rode from Orlando to South Beach ... but that was sixteen hours of time in the saddle over two days (a man's gotta sleep, ya know). I bet you could do it in twenty-four hours with no problem... hell, why not make a weekend of it? Ride from John Stone Mansion to Joe's Stone Crab for dinner on a Saturday, and ride home on Sunday.
