Think your too old,too broken for that big trip? Check out this 86 year old
I just happened to see a program on this 86 yr old Australian called Doug Sunderland. I think his story may have been mentioned in a ride report on the HUBB a while ago but thought it was worth reposting as the guy is a remarkable character.
At 85 with advanced prostate cancer and pretty much only 1 usable arm he rode around Australia.
At 75 he had a head on collision in India and broke his knee, shoulder and Ankle. He got back on his bike and kept riding.
You can find a page with a quick BIO at: doug-sunderland
He was featured in a T.V program called Australian story and you can watch the program in full at:
Australian Story :: On Your Bike
It goes for about 26 Minutes.

What a great story and a lovely guy.
I have just sent him seasonal greetings on Facebook from Denmark.
Send him a message from where you are I am sure he would get a kick out of getting messages from all over the world.
