A Quick Message from the End of the World...
I have made it to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego! I think the records will show that I have been on the road from Anchorage, Alaska for 268 days, pedalled 13,080 miles through 12 countries and reached the summit of highest peaks in the north and south of the Americas. This isn't another world record, but it is a world first, as far as I know!
I'm ecstatic to be here, it has been my dream and focus for so long - but also a small part of me is sad that the simple but tough life of bike and camera has come to an end, again, at least for now!
Most of all I am looking forward to seeing friends and family who I haven't seen since last May and getting to see the documentary which I have been filming all along!
This journey has been so different than cycling around the world. I have gone at a pace which has allowed me to experience the world I was passing, and the scale of the online blogging has transformed the whole experience for me.
I would like to thank everyone who has been following and especially those who have commented and contributed regularly. It's a very unique journey that we have completed together, not only in the sense of the expedition, but because of the online community which has built up to be a part of the almost real time documentary - this is the future!
I will post more when I have caught my breath and maybe had a shower but just wanted to let you know all is well from the finish and to send my thanks for all your support!
