Well, he did it! Morten finally completed the Fast America Ride on 30th May 2019, which saw him cycle some 5,554km from California to Massachusetts in just 33 days (30 days riding).
Here’s his Strava Stats since we last caught up:
Day 31: Cycling Liverpool NY – Amsterdam NY
Moving Time: 8:26:47
Day 32: Cycling Amsterdam NY – Keene NH – 3 State Day
Moving Time: 8:24:51
Day 33: Cycling Keene NH – Salisbury Beach Massachusetts – Mission Completed!
Moving Time: 7:00:00
Here’s a few words from the man himself:
29th May 2019: Yesterday was really a tough day, it was cold and raining cats and dogs all day and the headwind was brutal. I did not think it was possible to get so wet. Today coming into Keene, New Hampshire better, it was cloudy with less wind even though distance was quite long (202km). Tomorrow is the last day – my legs will be grateful for that 🙂
30th May 2019: Yep. Did it!!
Everyone at Bicycle Beyond would like to congratulate Morten on his amazing accomplishment, and we look forward to hearing all about it next time we meet up!
