THE MAKING OF A CYCLIST's DREAM
The Story Of The Cyclist Who Dared Challenge The Seas
"The world is a better place to live in because it
contains people who will give up ease and security
to do what they themselves believe worth doing.
They do the useless, brave, noble, the divinely foolish
and the very wisest things that are done by man.
And what they prove to themselves and to others is that man
is no mere creature of his habits, no mere automaton in his routine,
but that in the dust in which he is made, there is also fire
lighted now and then by great winds from the sky."
Quote [Author unknown] sent to Yvon by an American enthusiast
in the context of "Operation Gulf Stream."
"There is so much preparation necessary,
so much frustration that comes into it.
The logistics are tremendous,
the financial aspect almost staggering.
And then there is the training, mental and physical.
No one sees what it takes to do the damned thing."
