My route plan will have to remain flexible due to the unpredictable nature of long-term cycle touring. The main target is to complete a circumnavigation by adhering to the rules laid out by The Book of Guinness World Records. These rules require that I complete 40100km of total travel, 29000km of which must be cycled, through two roughly antipodal points, starting and finishing in the same place.
My current plan takes me east through Europe before crossing the Caspian sea by ferry. It continues east through "the 'stans" and Mongolia before turning south into south and south-east Asia. I will then fly to South America, continuing east to the west coast where I will catch a flight back to Europe to complete my journey back to the UK.
