The Warm-down
Cycling from Auckland to Christchurch in New Zealand

From October 15th until November 5th 2008, I will be cycling 700km from Auckland to Christchurch in New Zealand.

Leg Three – China
Skateboarding Around The World

China map

From April until September 2008, I skateboarded 5,000km across China. It took way longer than it should have because of crazy Chinese bureaucracy during the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. Half way through I even had to take a train all the way to Hong Kong to get a new visa, and return back to where I had stopped.

Leg Two – United States of America
Skateboarding Around The World

From December 2006 until April 2007 I skateboarded 4,500km across the US of A. Deep in the desert of New Mexico on Interstate 10 I surpassed the Guinness World Record for the Longest Journey by Skateboard.

Leg One point Five – Atlantic Ocean
Skateboarding Around The World

No, I did not skateboard around and around the deck of the boat. But I did sail across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Key West, Florida, USA. Well, I helped out on a sailboat that was sailing across. Took 28 days from the Canaries to the Caribbean. It took much longer to find a ride from the Caribbean to Key West in Florida, but made it there in the end.

Leg One – Eruope
Skateboarding Around The World

From July 2007 until August 2007 I skated 1,500km through Europe from Switzerland to England via Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
