The clock started at 6am on 16th June 2018 when Jenny rode out from Berlin, not stopping until she had cycled 18,000 miles across four continents. She traveled east through 16 countries - Belgium, Holland, Germany, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Mongolia, China, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, US, Portugal, Spain and France - took four flights, one boat and consumed over 660,000 calories!
By riding for 16 hours and averaging 180 miles a day, Jenny beat the current record by 14 days.
This was a self-supported ride, so Jenny's rules were:
- I'll do it all myself, under my own power - no drafting
- I'll carry all my own gear
- I won't accept any outside support (deliveries only to public addresses or open homes, no vehicles of any kind meeting me along the way to provide supplies or assistance).
