On 1st December 2022 we arrived back at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin having circumnavigated the World in:
179 days 12 hours and 25 minutes
And have now set a new Guinness World Record
We covered 18,195 miles through 21 countries averaging 100 miles a day and rode to Guinness rules including travelling in the same direction (West to East in our case) and travelling through two antipodean (opposite) points on the planet. Click on the map to see our route:
The fastest female tandem record is held by TandemWoW an amazing pair of women who completed the circumnavigation in 263 days, 8 hours and 7 minutes. The fastest male tandem record is held by Lloyd Collier and Louis Snellgrove 281 days 22 hours and 20 minutes. Jenny Graham and Mark Beaumont hold the women’s and men’s solo records in 124 and 79 days respectively.
We were self supported ourselves, carrying everything we need on the bicycle and finding food, water and places to sleep along the way. We had 2 “kit drops” in Singapore and Auckland but found everything else we needed on the road.
