The man who cycled the world

Hi Mohamed - look up Mark Beaumont's book "the man who cycled the world". His average was 100miles / 160km per day and it was pretty tough going. You'd want to avoid hills, heat and very cold weather as much as possible. Also perhaps look at prevailing winds as a headwind can really slow you down. It's a big challenge and it would be an incredible achievement if you make it - let us know how you get on.
