Thanks--I've just about finished reading Crazy Guy on a Bike, which I think I also found on Metafilter. I was pretty sure someone would come along with another adventure travel blog. This is what I read over morning coffee.

Interestingly, it's not the same one.

This guy rode from Tokyo to London, via such unusual places as Uzbekistan and remote Tibet.

I'll try this one out too, though.

I have gotten to the point with bikes that I have trouble processing anything cycling related that hasn't been passed through the BikesnobNYC snark-filter.

I started following them when they first started but then stopped after they pulled that stupid shit in the Grand Canyon.

Goat occasionally posts on the fixed gear gallery forum. You run into interesting equipment problems when you're riding those kinds of miles.

Honestly I have met so many of these people here in Alaska that I am not so easily impressed. I met a dude who walked from Patagonia across the Bering Strait and plans to go all the way to London. He set the bar pretty high.

Holy shit! I went to college with Goat. We were in the theater department together. He married two of my dear friends. Wow!

PS: In college, he lived in a tree. He's a fantastic guy, if quite odd.
