We are Clare and Gideon, 2 cyclists from Worthing, on the South coast of the UK, who opted to kick off Clare’s retirement by cycling from our home to Australia, starting April 2016 to “whenever we got there”. So we allowed 2 years, which seemed ample. So ample that we decided to cycle the rest of the way round the globe back to home. Two years less five days saw us back home, after 6 very wet final weeks back in Europe.
Home! After a pleasant short day’s ride from Portsmouth ferry terminal back to Worthing, the big adventure is over. Many thanks to the wonderful people all round the globe who treated us so kindly. And to our families for putting up with it. Now we’d better try and reformulate life at home, which sounds harder than travelling!
722 days, and 35085km ridden according to the bike computer. 24 different countries excluding the UK, including two antipodes – places on opposite sides of the globe.
