Lawrence Dye, the Legend of the Virginia Creeper Trail, pedaled his 189,000th mile on the Creeper Trail today!!!
If you're keeping score, 189,000 miles is equivalent to circumnavigating the Earth over 7.5 times and the same distance as 80% of the journey from Earth to the moon -- incredible!
Lawrence turned 84 years old in December and ended 2015 with 188,500 miles to his credit. As the weather warmed, he added another 500 miles just in March and April, averaging 40 miles on the days he rides.
Please join us in congratulating Lawrence on this phenomenal achievement!!!
