Phillip is headed to Chicago this summer to visit family. Phillip has 1,300 miles or so to go… On a bicycle… Pulling three fully-loaded trailers.
When I saw him sitting in the shade at the side of the road this morning, I had to stop and chat. I'm used to pulling my son around in a bike trailer. All told, him (42 pounds), his toys and his trailer (31 pounds) weigh in at 80-85 pounds. Phillip's convoy is every bit of 300 pounds.
Phillip doesn't know when he'll get to Chicago. He has done the round trip before but didn't keep track of the days, his peak wattage or calories burned. He rides without a GPS.
I wish I had more time to chat but I was running late for work. Below are some pictures. If anyone between Palm Beach County and Chicago, Illinios happens to see Phillip, please post an update to the comments below. I'd love to know what sort of progress he is making.
