Race Across America

The Race Across America is in full swing. Fellow randonneurs and fixed gear riders Jeff Bauer and Kevin Kaiser are having a great ride. There has been chatter on the Georgia list about them overtaking Jure Robic, the solo men's leader. As of this posting they'd covered about 1700 miles with an average speed of 15.4 miles per hour. Stats are here, and you can read their blog here.

For an incredibly entertaining story about Jure, check out this link.

All the best to Jeff and Kevin.

This is the kind of guy Jeff is, from the Gran Fondo Fixies blog:

Dollar for Altamont
We're coming to the four-way stop in Altamont and Jeff wants a dollar. At the stop there are guys collecting - firefighters, flood relief, or something. Jeff hands the guy a dollar and rides on. The guy is so startled that he drops the dollar. When we go by he says, "He didn't even wait for his lollipop!"
