For several climbers nationwide, topping out on all of Colorado’s 54 14,000 peaks remains a biggie on the life list — but can you imagine biking to every single one of them? Continuously?! Andrew Henrichs, a high-school athletic trainer from Carbondale, CO, hopes to pull off this mighty feat in 52 days, starting in early June. He’s hoping to raise awareness and $12,000 for World Bicycle Relief’s Project Zambia, which provides bicycles to “volunteer caregivers, disease prevention educators, and vulnerable households” in the HIV/AIDS-stricken country. From Henrichs’s site:

Generosity, goodwill, and a whole lot of Gus, I hope. Godspeed, Andy — we’ll certainly be watching your noble crusade closely this summer, feeling the burn from the relative comfort of our comparatively weak day rides. — Ted Alvarez
