British couple killed during round-the-world bike trip

The Adventure begins here http://www.twoonfourwheels.com/
And ends here... CHACHOENGSAO
Peter Root and Mary Thompson, who were on a round-the-world cycling odyssey,
died Wednesday when they were hit by a pickup truck in a province east of Bangkok.
The couple left Britain in 2011 and had biked through Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia
and China while blogging about their travels.

Sad way to end such a great adventure. RIP.
Too many times, too many wrong actions, by drivers.
:(
