Fastest Crossing of Europe by Bicycle, Sean Conway

Zooming gestures have been disabled on mobile.

Ginger-bearded adventure athlete Sean Conway, is attempting to break the World Record for the fastest crossing of Europe by bicycle.

Starting in Cabo de Roca on the west coast of Portugal, Sean is attempting to cycle 4,500 miles across Europe, finishing at the Russian town of Ufa in less than 25 days. The attempt is unsupported, meaning Sean will be carrying all of his kit with him along the way.

Ghost Rider?

As well as Sean’s progress, our GPS tracker is also showing how the current world record holder, James McLaren, performed back in 2016.

Even though their rides are separated by two years, we can still watch the record holder and challenger racing head to head. This allows us to see how far ahead (or behind!) Sean is at each stage of his record attempt, as well as how his choice of route differs to the standing record.
