As usual, I have collected a few statistics on this journey. Here are a few of them.
Distance travelled: 3016 km (1874 miles), in 157 hours, 38 minutes and 39 seconds of moving time. Total ascent: 29,928 metres.
The highest maximum speed achieved was 58.78 kph (36.5 mph) on the way down from the highest point on the trip (Lecht towards Tomintoul). Highest speed depends as much on a reliably good road surface as anything else.
So far, £8000.93 has been donated by 160 individuals/couples/families and an unknown number of cake eaters in Inverdee House – thank you all. There is still time to add to this total: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MarkTasker5 !
Accommodation and food cost me just over £2,500. I spent further on equipment but much of this I can continue to use after the ride.
My weight changed from 95 kg to 89.5 kg.
Total bird species seen or heard: 144.
Total mammals seen: 24 (+2 dead).
Total tubs in fields seen: 165 of which 144 were new.
