I know of the cyclist in question through Audaxing. He's a bit obsessive to put it mildly. In 2007 he scored 405 points on the the audax points table which meant that he'd ridden at least 40,000 km in audax governed events - he's nearest competitor cycled 19,000 km. The closest anyone in the audax world has got to him since then is 33,000 kmI'm not thinking whether it's possible, more 'why?'
Snow/ ice, wind and illness and just the dread of having to do it in February once the mindless drudgery sets in! [ Being so cheerful keeps me going! ]
Absolutely, he's about as hard as just about anyone who's ridden a bike.He's a very hard rider, and if there's one person who could make this work then I would say he is him. However he is not a media person.
And I agree with you that the mental side is probably the hardest bit.I'm not thinking whether it's possible, more 'why?'

I reckon that would get very tedious, very quickly.Sorry if i've overlooked it but would it not be easier just to do the same 205 mile route or atleast finish at his house each day?
I wish him good luck, that's a crazy challenge to take on and one most of us would never manage
