The route

Updated Route
Leave NewZealand mid February
To begin in Nevis first week of March
Rosario – Recief 5000km March, April,

Our aim is to ride 120km a day, 6 days out of 7. This is approximately 700km a week and averages to about 3000km a month.

These are rough calculations and will now get closer scrutiny in distance and feasibility. Some legs are based on existent routes:
2. May follow the Paris to Dakar race in reverse
5. A route described in Japanese touring and weaves the countries length
7. Part of the Ride the Divide race, finishing where the course begins to go West.

What are your thoughts & Suggestions?

    Looks good. Would you be posting a map with your route on it?

    • You bet! Detailed map to come … Finally sorted how we will get into Mongolia, through Russia! No crossings from China…
