Homey - is this like Paul Ryan's sub 3 hour marathon?

Your post makes it sound like you rode 3052 miles in 5d 19hrs (avg speed ~ 22mph) obviously that isn't possible.

An eight man relay team can make that kind of time.

Is that what you did? It is still quite an accomplishment!

How many miles did you ride? What was your longest day on the bicycle? Any pics or links?

From Wikipedia (

"The fastest men's speed was by Pete Penseyres in 1986, when he rode 3107 miles (5000 km) at 15.40 mph (24.8 km/h) in 8 days, 9 hours, and 47 minutes.[8]"... " The fastest eight-person team was established by Team Type 1 in 2009. The squad of riders who all have type 1 diabetes completed 3,021 miles in 5 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes."
