  1. Ken: What a feat! And once I found out about your missives, I enjoyed them greatly. Is dipping the wheel like putting the parsley in salt water?

  5. Way to go! What’s going to happen to the beard? Will you continue with your selfies? These are important questions that are crying out for a response. But first, enjoy your family, friends and some cake! I’ll just sit here in the dark.

Truly impressive, and we are grateful that you shared your daily trip thoughts – I read daily, along with many others…. I think my favorite picture is where you are throwing your bike into the Atlantic Ocean, because you never want to see that #&%&##% bike again…

  18. Ken,

    Does this mean your mid-life crisis is over? Maybe your crisis needs more time…you know, like a ride across Europe and Asia, summit Everest. Maybe this ride was just a healthy warm-up.

    Congrats on your awesome bike ride and achievement!
