    My Bad, I hadn't zoomed in enough, he's on Stock Island next to the Key West golf course, I'd say he's less than a mile to the end of the ride.
    Looks like it to me also. He was going to pick up a key to a friends place from a real-estate agent (so he'd have someplace to sleep tonight..)..

    Fantastic!

    I attempted to complete this UCC in 2005 in 100 hours, made it in 122 and it was the most difficult thing i have ever done in my life. What an incredible feat! Congratulations John!

    Final Key West from Prudo

    Stopping to think on it, I wonder if he did stop except for fuel and equipment.

    I know that he carrys quite a bit of snack food and fruit where he can get it while riding.

    I figure that he bested the record by 8-9 hrs.

    One Tremendous Accomplishment!

    I hope he stopped there and just sat on Stock Island for 10 minutes or something.

    Would drive everyone nuts! Hahaha.

    Congrats! I hope someone is there with a camera who can take a couple of pix and post 'em for us....

    He is moving again. This update shows him on Truman Ave and on Key West. He has not punched in the finish yet, at least on spot. He may have been meeting his witnesses before going on to have the mandatory picture at the furthest point south marker

    He seems stopped at the Key West police station - probably (hopefully) getting his documentation done. It's at 1604 N. Roosevelt Blvd.

    I see him at the corner of Whitehead and South Street. That's the official spot with the big "Southern Most Point in the US" sign where tourists always get a picture.

    Talk about Buns of Steel. Man...I don't even wanna think about how my butt would feel....

    I have a feeling this record is gonna stand for a while.... Congrats.

    If this is not an IBA sanctioned ride, why is he going to the trouble of getting gas receipts and witness signatures?

    Wouldn't the SPOT tracking be enough proof for anyone who might want to challenge?

    he doesn't want to take any chances. need all the reciepts and pictures. It would be a shame to have to do it all over again...

    We don't maintain such records, but the Ultimate Coast-to-Coast Challenge is, in fact, an IBA-sanctioned ride.
