Some more details.  Funny.  No, it isn't a long way, but then again, think of the octogenarians and older that you know riding a bike 15+ miles in an hour.  Cool.  I wonder how far the Obree/Boardman/Moser/Merckx hour records are?

Wow, this guy holds the current hour record?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ond%C5%99ej_Sosenka

Kind of a dick.  And what kind of cyclist gets caught for meth?

You probably do too.  Thanks for playing along.
