To fall down at your door


This song is called "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)", and it's by The Proclaimers, it first appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Benny and June (1993).  The man in the song would walk and walk to show his devotion to his love.  He would prove himself in the effort, and push beyond limitations to collapse in the doorway of his destination, giving it his all.... it's a noble sort of image.

Charlie has been this sort of bicycle.  He keeps going and going (even when things break).  Not bad for a bike rescued from a dumpster, eh?

Well Charlie has now outdone The Proclaimers and exceeded five thousand miles.

Here's to ten thousand!  Keep rolling young man!
