Why don't we circumnavigate (go right around the outside of) Australia?

It's a long way but I'm sure more people will join us on our journey in the coming weeks and months.

Getting back to the current challenge:

53.3km bike ride today.

NEW BALANCE: 21.5KM

Wonder who will have the honour of crossing the finishing line?

Congratulations everyone.

Ed. :D

WOOHOO TEAM WHAT A GREAT EFFORT, THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!! 3912KMS WALKED COLLECTIVELY BY US ALL.

Nice going Kate getting us over the finish line. I hope Garfield comes back and sees what she started! :D

Personally I like the idea of Adelaide to Darwin and then maybe we could go for the around Australia thing that ED suggested. What do you think guys?

I can't believe it! First time I've come here in a while and you've already finished! Well done everybody! I feel like a slacker for not helping out much after starting this, but you all did so well. I didn't think it would be finished that quickly, so well done everyone!
