Colombia to TDF in a month?

Ok, I know that a lot of you will say why would you try and do this in a month, and I get it. BUT, this is the time I will have available after Central America in November.

So can it be done with riding in a reasonable way (no multiple iron butt days in a row).

Thanks again for your help and opinions!

Sure, its doable. There was a guy on here recently who rode from Deadhorse - Ushuaia - Deadhorse in less than 60 days.

Colombia to TDF is about 10,000 miles give or take depending on your route? In some places 300 miles is a very big day and takes all day, in others you can tick off more. In theory if you average about 350 miles a day it shouldnt be a problem.

Ride, eat, sleep, ride, eat, sleep, repeat. If you want to do nothing but ride all day everyday the only limit is your stamina. If you have to wait on parts for any reason or you want to see something or do anything other than ride it could set you back.

If its all about covering miles as fast as you can and nothing else, you can do it.

If it were me I would just skip Central America and ship the bike right to Colombia to give you more time to actually see something other than the world vibrating through your face shield.
