jeff_kohnOur recent post about Dan Zinn's 14K ride sparked a conversation with pro long distance rider "Jeff the Fence Guy"  Jeffrey E. Kohn. 

From talking to Jeff, we learned that there are records, and then there are RECORDS.

So, we set out to learn what it takes to ride competitively for over 8600 miles in 8 days, and finish in the top three.

Jeff patiently explained the answers to our most basic long distance riding questions … how you refuel, eat, stretch your legs, and sleep … all while racing the clock, fighting fatigue, and battling the elements.
