Final stats

Posted by Paul Bayfield on July 21, 2014 at 12:05 PM

Distance: 18,799 miles / 30,254 km (Equivalent to: 8.3 Tour de France's)

Climb: 637,681 ft / 194,365 m (Equivalent to: 22 Everests, or reaching the edge of space twice)

Time cycling: 1,736 hrs 29 mins (Equivalent to: a 9 to 5 job for 1 year)

Countries: 31

Days cycled: 307

Average distance per cycling day: 61.2 miles

Furthest days: 138 miles (Australia), 132 miles (Mexico), 127 miles (India)

Climbingest days: 7,995 ft (Caucasus Mountains, Georgia), 7,363 ft (Andes Mountains, Chile), 7,080 (Sierra Madre de Chiapas Mountains, Mexico)

Longest days: 10 hrs 33 mins (Georgia), 10 hrs 16 mins (India), 9 hrs 49 mins (Mexico)

Number of century rides (100+ miles): 19

Average speed: 10.8 mph

Top speed: 44.8 mph (Blue Mountains, Australia)

Highest elevation: 3,814m (Andes Mountains, Chile & Argentina border)

Punctures: 10 (2 in India, 3 in Mexico, 1 in Chile, 4 (in a single day) in Argentina)

Falls off my bike: 8 (1 in Moldova, 5 in Georgia, 2 in Australia)

Complete breakdowns: 1 (broken drop-out in USA)

Longest time without a shower: 8 days (Australia)

Highest temperature: 46 degrees Celcius (Honduras & Nicaragua)

Best food: India, Mexico, Argentina

Best beer: Slovakia, Germany, Mexico

Favourite countries: Georgia, New Zealand, Mexico

Least favourite countries: El Salvador, Australia, Honduras

Best roads: Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic

Worst roads: India, Georgia, Brazil

Best drivers: Belgium, Netherlands, Spain

Worst drivers: India, Argentina, taxi and truck drivers anywhere

Favourite moments: Cycling up (or rather, 10 minutes after having cycled up when I was no longer swallowing vomit) Baldwin Street in New Zealand, the steepest street in the world. Camping in the Chilean Andes at 3,000m elevation then climbing over the 3,814m gravel pass into Argentina. Cycling back into London as a solo circumnavigator. Being given 50 rupees by a man in a small village in India.

Worst moments: Crossing the border from Honduras to Nicaragua in 45 degree heat while very ill. I'm a bit haunted by that day, still. Camping and almost freezing in Belgium. Letting the constant headwinds eventually break me down and giving up in Costa Rica instead of riding another 300 miles to Panama. The conditions were terrible and often brought me to tears, but looking back I'm gutted I didn't show more strength and persevere for a few more days.

Favourite non-cycling activities: Hiking and climbing Mount Doom in New Zealand, seeing Iguazu Falls in Argentina & Brazil, seeing the Grand Canyon

Places I'd recommend for a cycling holiday/tour: Along the Greenways cycle route in Czech Republic, into the mountains in Georgia for a challenge, Spain

Places I wouldn't recommend for cycling: India, Australian Outback, El Salvador


Paul,

Chertsey, England
