Jumping for Joy


Blackrock- Ireland

Below are the guidelines for a circumnavigation of the globe by bike set by Guinness.  We’ve been sticking to them since Nov 08 and have ticked all off the list but one- the journey must start and finish at the same point. We’ll do this Tomorrow, why don’t you join us?

– Start and finish points must be the same location.

– The route must pass through two approximate antipodal points.

– The minimum distance ridden should be 28,970 km and the total distance traveled by the bicycle and rider should exceed an Equator’s length, i.e. more than 40,075 km.

– Cross the equator a minimum of two times.

– Cross all longitudes.

– The journey should be continuous and in one direction.

– Any considerable distance traveled opposite to the direction of the attempt must be discounted from any calculations of the overall distance traveled.

– A detailed photographic record of landmarks, boundary signs, etc., en route should be kept.
