Everyone has that crazy friend who is really just in it for the suffering. The one who is always down to “tack on a few extra miles” or make another ski touring lap. The masochistic psychopath who might enjoy pain more than pleasure.

Well, it seems that Payson McElveen is that person for his friends. Watch Payson’s most recent short film “Crossing Iceland”, where he literally crosses Iceland, in ONE SINGLE DAY.

257 miles of rugged 4 by 4 roads, many icy river crossings, 7,000 calories of fuel (that he carried) and 19 hours and 45 minutes later, Payson successfully crossed Iceland self-supported via bicycle.

You are a maniac Payson, Congrats on your achievement!!!!
