That is incredible and it's great to hear how she inspired others to challenge themselves, lose weight, etc...

I hope she and her family have success in whatever they decide to do next.

Yeah, 200+ miles a day for a year. No big deal. I bet you could do that. No problem. I bet my 9 yo could too. This record is a total joke.
Get a sense of humor --- that was a joke. I'm happy if I can get 200 miles a week in.

Actually, I've followed this off and on over time. She started out trying to break the woman's record and then kept going.

currently on track to ride only about 10% of that distance this year and it feels like it's a significant effort.

can't imagine facing 200+miles/day every single day...

After about 3 days, it was probably like riding a trainer while watching TV with the same show on for the whole time. Very difficult psychologically.

Incredible effort - wonder if anyone else will try to break the record using a similar small course strategy.

What is with the "no drafting" sign?

I know I couldn't do what she did, but I bet she is strong.
