Follow :: Eric Hites “Fat Guy Across America”

Found a really interesting story on the web this weekend about a cat called Eric Hites.

He’s a really big dude. He’s over 5 and a half bills. But, he is doing something bigger than an arbitrary number and its pretty damn inspirational.

He’s riding a bike across this great country of ours, with just a bike, a bike trailer and a guitar, and he’s for a couple of reasons.

In his own words, here you go:

I am riding a bicycle from east coast to west coast for a few reasons, 1 to prove things to my wife and my love. 2 to take back my health and to lose the pounds I have collected over the years. As of right now, I’m 560 pounds. I will be blogging and video blogging the whole trip and interviewing people along the way. After I complete my trip I will write a book on the experience. This fund raiser to help with supplies and equipment and any costs for camping, eating, etc. I’ll need all the support I can get.

He’s already left for his trip and you can check him out at
