In March 2012, I left my home in Gloucestershire, UK, to cycle around the world. I have no idea how long this will take ...

How far do you cycle per day?

I look to cycle around 100km on a full cycling day.  That’s the benchmark.  However, road quality, terrain, weather, time-pressure, availability of good food, bike maintenance and frame of mind play a huge part in determining how far I go on any given day.  In Siberia I managed almost 150km/day for a month, whereas in Tajikistan I made far less.  Likewise, at the beginning of my trip I cycled fewer kilometers per day than I do now.
