    So far ...

    5000 km over 3 months in Australia in 2004.

    We flew into Sydney, cycled to Melbourne, rode the Great Southern Randonnee 1200K randonneuring event, flew into Launceston, cycled around Tasmania for 3 weeks, flew out of Hobart and into Cairns, cycled a little further north than Cape Tribulation, turned around and cycled down to Brisbane, via the Atherton Tablelands, and then caught a bus from Brisbane to Sydney.

    10,915 miles in about 10 months in 2001-2002. Went around the perimeter of Australia, starting in Brisbane, and finished it off with 3 weeks in Fiji.

    Waiting for some of those PanAm riders to chime in and really give us perspective.

    I was feeling good about 700 miles until I read this. Geesh, people think I'm nuts!

    700 miles is less than a 1200K (~750 miles) randonnee which is completed in less than 90 hours including all breaks. I've done 4 of them.

    700 miles as a tour is not nuts at all.
