At first this seems like a charming story about a guy pedalling his bike thru sand in order to raise awareness of environmental issues.  But it takes a starkly dark turn, when you realize the real challenge for him will be in riding his bike thru the beaches of glass made from our unimaginably stupid use of “tactical” nuclear weapons.

I mean, aside from the radiation poisoning….

Good point and I noticed that his ride was delayed by the political climate of nuclear power. I didn’t seem him blogging and hope he does.
