Day 1257, Collipulli – San Carlos: The Record Day

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Mar - 05 - 2014

Distance: 210.84 km! New Record
Ride time: 9:01:48
Average: 23.37 km/h
Total: 24272 km

With the steady tailwind yesterday we had cycled 100 km in half a day. With that in mind, I thought it was time to try to beat my old distance record – a record that was standing at 170 km from a day back in 2011 where I cycled from Damascus in Syria to Amman in Jordan.

I was updating Twitter as the day went along. This is how it happened – a 200 km cycling day told in 160 characters or less:

    Hola Thomas! Todo muy bien por aquí. Me alegro de que estés disfrutando en Santiago, aunque debe ser más montañoso que Granada (aquí no hay nieve en verano, jejejeje). Un abrazo y espero que todo siga genial!
