Ian Hibell is a bicycle tourer that makes me feel like I should take the training wheels off my bike. Ian traveled 10 times further than what I did, about the equivalent of 10 times around the equator over his 40-year travel career. Apparently, he was the first man to ride from the top of the Americas to the bottom, including the Darien Gap in Panama, which is a swampland full of banana boats and drug smugglers. He did a lot of truly amazing things but was unfortunately killed last August by a hit and run accident in Greece. Read a tear-jerker about Ian in the Economist.
