The Ultimate Bike Ride â€" Saddling up to cycle around the World in 100 days

Christopherholeby ChristopherholeNov 19th 2009
To most people the idea of cycling the gruelling yet iconic 874 miles route between Lands End and John O'Groats is a major achievement. While it was exactly that, for me cycling the length of the UK is warm up for a challenge on an altogether bigger scale. My plan in a nutshell is in March 2012 to Cycle Around the World in 100 Days, this means pedalling a minimum of 18,000 miles in all and approaching 200 miles per day.

To give you some comparison the current record stands at 176 days and I think the average daily mileage was about 110-120 miles. So why do I think I can almost cut this record in half? It is built on my philosophy; You can Achieve anything if you are willing to mind to it. When I say this I don't mean positive thinking, I mean specific level headed planning, preparation and precise execution.

With this challenge I want to spark peoples imagination, expand what they think they are capable of, provoke there thoughts and belief's about themselves, push themselves further and this is not just on a physical level but on a mental, financial, social, vocational, spiritual and familial level.

Sounds like a hard, but fantastic challenge. I love the idea of pushing the body farther and farther. Like Kirk Johnson said, we haven´t even begun to reach the limits of distance. My hat is off to you! I am sure you will accomplish what you´ve set out to do! Keep us posted!
