Ah yes, that's the fellow, he must have been relatively young when the accounts appeared in Bicycling!

Ian Hibell is still touring (he comes home now and again) and is, at the moment, touring Vietnam. In 2004/5 he cycled from Hull, England to Vladivostok, Russia, the complete width of Russia! not bad for a 71 year old. Nic Henderson South Wales UK

This reminds me of accounts published In The Day in Bicycling! of an around-the-world cyclist. That fellow, a Brit I believe, rode a then already 20 year old Freddy Grubb, built in the 50's. Anyone remember the name of that world traveler?

A nice, interesting story about a guy with the right attitude (IMHO).

At least part of his bike is old enough for us to pay attention. I'd love more details.
