Epic adventure by Craig Nilsson, please follow and support this if you can.
I thought I’d just drop you an email to say that I am off to attempt the Guinness World Record for the most countries visited in 7 days from Sunday (19th). The record currently stands at 15. My plan is to start in Greece in the morning of Sunday and ride to the Netherlands if I can, stopping at every country along the way. If I make it all the way to Italy I will have reached 16 countries, if I make it to the Netherlands, that will be 22.
The distance I am planning to cover is just about 2900km om paper (1800 miles) which means I am planning to cover 410km/256 miles per 24 hours. I am doing this self-supported; carrying everything I need along with me on my bike; I’m hoping it will make for a great adventure.
I am attempting to raise funds for Shelter as it occurred to me that I have decided to voluntarily sleep in the cheapest hotels and rough all week so I thought it would be nice to try to raise some money for those who have no choice in where they sleep next week. My fundraising site is on just giving:
My progress should be available through my live tracking site which hopefully will make for something interesting to watch for anyone who’s curious:
I’ll be posting updates on my Instagram @craig_ns_adventure as I go too.
Any help you could lend me by raising awareness of my ride would be awesome;
