    Texas man bikes around perimeter of Lone Star State in 58 days

    Well, he certainly put his pedal to the metal.

    Austin, Texas, resident Aaron Chamberlain biked more than 3,000 miles around the perimeter of the Lone Star State, with his journey creating an almost perfect depiction of the Texas map, he revealed on Twitter.


    “Didn’t want to leave y’all waiting too long. Final map!! 3014.64 miles in 58 days (6 rest days, [52] riding days). Thanks for following along,” Chamberlain tweeted out Wednesday along with a red-lined map that showed his Texas-shaped route.


    Chamberlain did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. However, he did document his two-month long journey in Texas Monthly magazine, dubbing it the “Tour de Texas.”

    In his latest write-up for the Downtown Austin-based magazine, Chamberlain described his experience of biking through Texas’ Big Bend region, in the southwest corner of the state, as “an unforgettable experience, with beautiful desert and mountain vistas making up for the painful hills.”

    Twitter users who closely followed Chamberlain’s bike tour or just discovered his milestone achievement praised his impressive escapade.

    “Today my amigo @elmachuca crossed the finish line on his journey around the perimeter of TX on a bicycle by making it back to Brownsville, where he began on 1 Sept, riding 3000+ miles through just about every kind of TX there is along the way,” photographer Tony Drewry wrote Wednesday. “Congrats mi Rrrrey!”

    Similarly, a Texas Monthly editor, Daniel Vaughn, tweeted out, “This guy rode his bicycle around the entire Texas border. Crazy.”

    “Congrats! Looks like it was a great adventure!” radio personality Craig Miller, who co-hosts The Ticket Sportsradio, wrote online.
