    Extreme Adventure Riding? You need to watch this.

    A very good friend of our owns Eurocycles of Tampa Bay. Aaron was one of the riders on Globebusters' first ever group ride from London to Beijing, thru the Himalayas. There is a DVD of the ride that you just have to see.

    The oldest guy that completed the ride was 74. If I remember right, it was 18 countries in 80 days, including crossing some of highest navigable passes in the world. They even rode to Everest Base Camp. The full story of the ride is amazing. They had to contend with political unrest, corrupt border crossing officials, altitude sickness, and probably the most frightening thing of all, Chinese traffic...
