From Longwood to Alaska and back -- via bicycle

Sentinel Staff WriterNovember 17, 2009

When we set out to do the truly incredible, whether it is climbing a mountain or running a marathon or biking thousands of miles to Alaska, we never think about what happens next.

The finish line keeps us going, faster, stronger to the end. We raise our arms when we make it. Sometimes our eyes well with pride. Sometimes we shout with glee. Sometimes we bury our faces in our hands or pump our fists in the air.

Then what? Steven Perezluha and Danny Chew know all about that question. After the two reached their goal of biking to Alaska on Aug. 6, they faced the long ride back to Florida.


Editor's Note: Danny Chew who organizes the Dirty Dozen in Pittsburgh sent me this story.
