Bring Douglas home!

HBL member and supporter, Douglas Concha, has been busy riding his single-speed bicycle around the world. How far exactly? Since we saw him off from Magic Island it has been 274 days (nine months), and Douglas has completed 18,001 miles, with over 377,200 feet of elevation gained. This Friday, you have the chance to help bring Douglas home on his final leg of this almost unbelievable, fully incredible, global feat!
