Text: "Elko, Nev.

Two bicycle riders pushed their tandem bike 295 miles yesterday -- from Reno to Elko -- in 14 hours and 35 minutes, putting themselves ahead of their schedule for a record-setting 11-day trip from the Golden Gate Bridge to New York.

Including three stops for food and rest Joe Breeze and Otis Guy averaged 22.23 miles per hour across the Nevada desert."
