A long ride home
One of my former schoolmates, Jonathan Ringrose, is going to cycle home. 'Home' is Brisbane, Queensland. His current location? Stockholm, Sweden.
The Jonathan I remember was a quiet, friendly, well-liked kid at Churchie, who was pretty talented at chess as well. I'd lost touch with him since high school until his quiet, friendly, and bearded (!) face popped up on my Facebook feed, announcing day 1 of his adventure. In case you want to know what it's all about, or more likely, want to know why the heck someone would want to attempt this, check out his first video post at his blog, http://www.mylongridehome.com.
