Biking the Iditarod

Jill Homer's Bike Delivered

We have talked a lot about Jill Homer's preparations to bike 350 miles in snow and ice for this weekend's Human Iditarod race. When we last spoke to Jill, she was worried she wouldn't have a bike to ride, because FedEx didn't have a clear idea of where it was or when it would get to her. Kind of a "girl meets bike, girl loses bike" story. How will this one end?

Like all great stories: girl gets bike. I just checked the tracking number Jill gave us. Her beloved Pugsley was delivered on Thursday, February 21st. It doesn't say what time the bike showed up. Here's Jill's blog post about it.

The race starts tomorrow.
