Peter Heal - round Australia record

Over here in Australia we've been following a record breaking tour.

http://www.sydneycyclist.com/profile...ource=activity

Peter cycled a 14,913km lap of Australia in 48 days, 23 hours and 37 minutes, averaging a fraction over 304km per day without a rest day. Apparently he still managed 8 hours of sleep a night.

Some tours are done at a relaxing pace with the goal of seeing the scenery etc. ... others are done to meet a goal.
