A man has cycled over 2,500 miles in order to raise awareness of the Yemen crisis. However, many were left amused by his cycling trail, in which he travelled from Poo Poo Point to Pee Creek.
To raise awareness of the Yemen crisis, Twitter user @rubydrummr cycled across the country, “biking nearly 5,000 miles” and did so in the course of 36 days.
When deciding on where to cycle to in order to raise the much-needed money, the cycler decided on one of the nation’s most intrepid journeys: he would go on a landmark voyage by travelling from number two in the west to number one in the east.
To complete the 2,553 mile bike ride, he started off at Poo Poo Point in Washington and then travelled across nine states until he reached Pee Pee Creek in Ohio.
Proud of the accomplishment and the money he had raised, he later took to Twitter and wrote: “Bro I started crying tears of joy and then started laughing my ass off about crying over pee pee creek.”
He explained that in order to complete trip on time, he had to cycle 69 miles every single day.
He added: “Not a mile more, not a mile less.”
I can’t believe I did it. Over 2500 miles on a bicycle, 36 days ? LMFAO pic.twitter.com/gDGmiDUUTi

@rubydrummr’s original post ended up racking over 723,000 likes and over 83,000 retweets.
Wowed by the reaction, he wrote: “I’m so glad y’all appreciate this. I’m still biking but I’ll talk more about the trip when I get times to chill.”
Whilst on the incredible cycling journey, he had the opportunity to take in some breathtaking sights. Amusingly, he discovered even more excretion-based locations.
He tweeted: “I almost forgot I passed Sharts Road on the way to pee pee creek. Can’t make this up.”

When asked what bike he had used to travel, @rubydrummer shared a photo and explained that although he had used a triathlon bike, he was aware it wasn’t the best bike for the sort of journey he had planned.
He said: “Broke boys gotta work with what they got.
“I KNOW my budget setup is wild but I’m not a cyclist just a determined ass, broke adventurer using what I had.”
Perhaps an e-bike would have been easier?
