Around the World with Jenny Graham


Adventure Syndicate member Jenny Graham rode her way into the Guinness World Records last year becoming the Fastest Woman to circumnavigate the world by bike. Completing her ride solo and unsupported she covered 18,427 miles (ca. 29,655 km) in 124 days knocking almost three weeks off the previous (supported) record of 144 days set by Italy’s Paola Gianotti in 2014.

Starting her journey in Berlin on 16 June 2018, Jenny cycled 15 hours a day, often riding through the night when the roads were quieter. She managed an average of 156 miles (ca. 251 km) a day, keeping an average speed of 14mph (ca. 23 km/h) a day.

The route took her across four continents and through 16 countries. Battling through tornados, bear country and Russian traffic, Jenny tells her story with a humorous take on the highs and lows.
