Longtime readers may remember Norberto de Angelis. The Italy native was a football player who became paralyzed in a car accident. After his recovery, he decided to pedal the length of Route 66 in 2009 using a specially equipped hand bicycle.
This 26-minute video documents his journey. The narration is in Italian, but it should be easy enough to follow.
De Angelis also posted photos from Route 66 on his website.
