James Bowthorpe Rollapaluza 300 miles in 24 hours marathon

John June 16, 2011 0

Being that I am up extra early today, I figured I could use this time to browse the interweb for some cool content.  So, I jumped on facebook and found this little video about James Bowthorpe…you may have heard of him, he is known for  completing an unratified circumnavigation of the globe in 175 days back in September 2009.  Anyways, in this video you can see the “cycling freak” ride for 24 hours straight in a 300 mile marathon on the Rollapaluza rollers in the window of Look Mum No Hands Cafe in London…in fact, as I’m writing this now he is still pedaling…his 24 hours is scheduled to end at 7:30pm in London…i think London is 5 hours ahead of us, so it’s about 2:15pm over there now…only 5 hours and 15 more minutes to go!

All this is in preparation for this years Race Across America!
