November 7th, 2015

Back in May we wrote a tongue in cheek post about the Daily Mail’s enthusiastic obsession with following Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cycling habits in excessive detail.

Between July 2010 and May 21st 2015 they racked up an incredible 22 stories on the topic of Arnie’s bike rides. We thought that rate would be the maximum possible.


Keep it up, Arnie! (Linked to source)

Since May 21st though we’ve been proven wrong in a big way by 6 new articles about ‘Shorts-zenegger’. We’ve updated our map and his list of jollies accordingly – the numbers start at 23 reflecting the rides in the previous post.
