I have crossed 15 countries so far. This is what it looks like at the finishing celebration of a country like Australia after many lonely days on the road. I usually don't ride the next day!
A boy with a dream in a Cancer Clinic. He wants to fight fires after he finishes this fight. He already is a hero.
The best way to train for a World Record in New Zealand on the World's Steepest Street (Pictured) when training in Whistler. Ski jumps with the same 35% grade of course.
If you ever cycle across Australia: Be warned south of Brisbane along the coast, the flies and bugs are relentless. Worse than Burma or Thailand where the mosquitoes carried Dengue and Malaria. They need protein to breed. They get protein from your tears, saliva, the mucus in your nose -- and from blood. - I rigged up a cool face bug net after swallowing several flies and one stuck way up my sinus. I think they breed on the cow dung and kangaroo carcasses that litter the roadways in many areas. I minimum speed of 15-20 MPH outruns them a real motivator to keep going. If you go too fast they will hitch a ride on your back just waiting for you to stop and swarm you.
Crossing Thailand in 2014 we arranged a cycle 90 km into Bangkok with donations to the Red Cross Hematology Cancer Clinic in Bangkok. Myself and around 80 cyclists from all over the world cycled together for a common goal. I am so humbled and honored to confirm that now an annual charity ride will now be held for cancer charity in Bangkok since my ride there. It will be broken into 100, 50, 25 km cycle into the cycle called Rudy Pospisil's Ride To Conquer Cancer. Another annual strike against cancer and example that we are all working together to eliminate this disease once and for all!!!
My Name is Rudy Pospisil
