1400km, 11km of up-ness, kind of like PBP, only longer. Starts at 13:00 Sunday Japan time (if I've got that figured right).

I know a fellow who is doing this, former colleague from quite a while back (he did PBP last year or the year before), his tag is A7 if you'd like to armchair it.

My original comment was not a comment about the total climbing, but rather that in the 700km (one way) trip there was only one climb of around 500m, and a few smaller ones.

Maybe it's a lovely route?

I got the impression to be a fairly plan route, the 11km of climbing should be at 0.5%? The total climbing altitude seems to sum quite low.

Still, is a massive distance.

Congrats to Peter!

London departure: 7/29, 13:51
London return: 8/2, 19:04

~4 days and 6 hrs.

4.5 days of a guesstimated 12hrs riding, and it's like that many 320km days. (At my 'peak' a few years ago, I'd've been happy doing as many 40-45km days in a row.)
