Robert Young the awful runner, much prefers being on a bike.

From his book:

Looking at the strava data, I'm actually surprised to see that it looks like his first 24 hours covering 81.7 miles in 9 legs were done on foot, not bike. Even the initial 30.5 miles looks like a runner's route, not a cyclist, when he deviates from the bike path. I expected to find another smoking gun here, but don't.

Don't get me wrong. I think this transcon was a big sham and there are plenty of other smoking guns. But the opening leg actually looks legit even though the paces would be foolish, impetuous, naive, and inefficient for anyone attempting 7 straight weeks of 60 mile days.
