I recently rode my bicycle across America and saw a whole bunch of craziness: A hurricane in Maine, hail storms in the Arizona desert, a haboob in the California sand dunes, and hundreds of giant frogs…giant steel frogs…more specifically, giant battered austenitic manganese-steel frogs! No, I didn’t lose my mind cycling for 43 days alone.Read more
