Phil Keoghan will bike across the United States

Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan will leave his mat behind as he bikes across the United States starting March 28 in L.A. and concluding May 9 in New York.

“I fly over 400,000 miles a year and I figured it was time to stretch my legs. I love to ride so I thought I’d see what this great country looks like up close instead of taking a bird’s eye view at 30,000 feet. In this economic climate, bike riding makes a lot of sense — it’s good for your waistline and easy on your wallet,” Phil said in the announcement.

During that trip, Phil will “attend meet and greets with supporters at local GNC stores, visit CBS affiliates, attend open-casting calls for the next installment of THE AMAZING RACE, sign copies of his best-selling book No Opportunity Wasted, and ride alongside ex-Racers and fans of THE AMAZING RACE. He will also be participating in rallies hosted by the National MS Society to build awareness for Bike MS and the MS movement,” according to a CBS press release.

His trip is sponsored, of course, but at least it’s not by that damn gnome. Instead, it’s by GNC, the nutritional supplements store. In the press release, one of its executives, Tom Dowd, says, “All of us at GNC are extremely impressed with Phil’s commitment and dedication to living a healthy lifestyle. Having been fans of the ‘The Amazing Race’ and Phil from the first season, we recognized what a great opportunity this was to partner with him.”
