A 560-pound (254-kilogram) man biking across the United States to lose weight hit a snag in Rhode Island.
The Newport Daily News reports a bent rim on Eric Hites’ bicycle has kept him in Tiverton since late last week, 90 miles (145 kilometers) from where his ride began in Falmouth, Massachusetts.[contentblock id=5 img=adsense.png]
Newport Bicycle is outfitting Hites with a new bike that can withstand his weight. In two weeks on the road, the 40-year-old says he’s lost 60 pounds (27 kilograms).
Hites says he’s always been a big person. He hopes to lose hundreds of pounds and gather material for a second book. He previously authored a humorous cookbook entitled “Everybody Loves Ramen,” which includes 50 recipes he developed in college.
