A 66-year-old Chinese man set a new record on August 8 by cycling across the U.S. in 66 days.
Fei Xuan and his four companions started their journey from Plymouth harbor in Boston on June 3. In just 66 days, they cycled 5,815 kilometers and passed through 13 U.S. states along Route 66, and arrived at their destination in Santa Monica, California on Saturday.
Fei then created a new record as the oldest Chinese man to successfully cycle across the United States, and received a Congress certificate from Ed Royce, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Fei said that cycling across the U.S. along Route 66 at the age of 66 provides him a special opportunity to experience the history and culture of the country thoroughly.
Besides this record, Fei already holds range of titles, including the oldest Chinese person to reach the North Pole, pass Greenland, and cross the Sahara Desert on foot.
