velobleu - you know those bikes out on the street you can rent for a dollar to get around town? 18 kgs, 3 spd, clunky as hell? yeah those. The Nice Ironman velo part is 180+ km and 2000 m or so climbing i think. He did it in 7 hours. Video is "view from the basket." First 5 minutes of video is my commute in the morning. Music gets better around 35:00 or so and scenery better around 40:00.
