My friend and business partner, Josh Hartman, is (along with nine other cyclists) in the middle of an incredible, perhaps insane, bike ride from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal. It's a ride that will take them a "million meters" (about 625 miles), including several daily rides of more than 50 miles at altitudes higher than anything in the continental United States.
This link shows their plan:
And this link has their occasional blog updates. Obviously, in the middle of the Himalayas, they don't get to the Internet every day...
Here's a map of their route (click on map for larger version)
