A young Iranian cyclist will pedal 5,200 kilometers around the Caspian Sea to raise environmental issues and is expected to take 40 days.
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 â€œtacticalâ€ nuclear weapons.
I mean, aside from the radiation poisoningâ€¦.
Good point and I noticed that his ride was delayed by the political climate of nuclear power. I didnâ€™t seem him blogging and hope he does.
