Fat Guy Across America might sound mean, but that's how he calls himself. Here's a statement from his website:
"I blame the Proclaimers I really do. I will be riding a bicycle from east coast to west coast for a few reasons, 1 to prove things to my wife and my love. 2 to take back my health and to lose the pounds I have collected over the years. As of right now, I'm 560 pounds. I will be blogging and video blogging the whole trip and interviewing people along the way. After I complete my trip I will write a book on the experience."
He's fat and he knows it, but that's about to change for this 560 pounds american. Apparently, this guys marriage was falling appart and he wanted to get a new job, so once he hit 40 years old, he decided his life had to change. Many called him crazy for doing this, but he decided to go on a bicycle journey across america to lose weight. He started from New Jersey and by the time he got to Long Island, his back wheel broke. Luckily for him, his story went viral and his fundraiser
got him 8 000$ in one month! A bikeshop also agreed to build him a better bike that would support his weight for free, and the guy will write a book about his journey once completed. Any person weighting this much would probably never even consider riding a bike, so this guy is seriously a badass. You can follow his journey on his Facebook Page
