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 Dal...

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 am in in the USA and it’s a strange sense of relief to be somewhere that literally speaks my language. It’s a great feeling to know you are in familiar surroundings.

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.

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

The beginning of the week saw me cycling to Arica which is 20km short of the Peru border. The day involved two large climbs, one of 21km and the second of 15km. The one thing I will take away from South America is the fact e...

This week saw me take on the Atacama desert, the driest non poplar desert in the world and I can see why.

When I first did my research on this challenge, 3 main areas of concern for difficulty in riding conditions were highli...

That's now Day 17 complete and I am now 2137 miles into the challenge, a huge contrast in regards to so many elements, the scenery, the culinary options, the weather and the cycling conditions.

It was very difficult the two weeks prior to arriving in country to really focus and get myself in the correct mindset for the challenge ahead due to so many events and media interviews. 

A great comfort to know though that d...
