This week sees me hit over 12,000 miles leaving less than 2000 miles to push. Great news however this will no doubt be the hardest of the Challenge. I move along the Alaska Highway and onto Fairbanks where I will hit the Daltons Highway, famous for the Ice Road Truckers. A road normally impassable during most of the year except June-August. Im obviously taking it on in May so there is a lot of danger ahead, with ice, snow, tha...

Ending this week in Canada. I'm now cycling sub zero degrees. With the dramatic change in weather from last week in Texas it has me prepping for the final leg in Prudhoe bay.

I’ve pushed into Calgary however its left my support team slightly on edge as I am now cycling through the big cities. The traffic means I can be 30 to 40 miles out of their sight so they have to trust I get though the city safely. I must admit I quit...

Thinking we had esc...

The week in Mexico has been one to remember, firstly I had opportunity to celebrate my 41st birthday with my bike and computer covering another 150 miles.

Mexico has given me a combination of all riding experiences, be it at 40 degrees plus one moment to then 8 degrees in an eventful thunderstorm washing off my sunscreen. I've had huge mountain climbs, then followed by miles and miles of flat terrain.

I only have 3 more days lef...

This week has been fast and slow, fast in the fact that we are ticking off the countries, but slow due to border delays.

Regardless I have achieved the daily miles expected and now we are in country 11 (Mexico) with an expected period of 9 days to steal some miles.

Central America has been amazing for the scenery, however the heat and humidity have been testing. Since setting off from Panama I have now lost an additional 1kg and...
