Alan Bate - Round the World record

Updated Wed., Jan. 18, 2012

Alan Bate's Round the World record has been officially recognised by the Guiness Book of Records.

We've now got the official Guiness Book of Records citation for Alan's efforts.

"Current Certificate Text:

The fastest circumnavigation by bicycle is 96 days, 10 hours and 33 minutes, and was achieved by Alan Bate (UK) who cycled a distance of 29,467.91 km (18,310.47 mi) and travelled over 42,608.76 km (26,475.8 mi) in total (including transfers). The journey started and finished at the Grand Palace in Bankok, Thailand, from 31 March to 4 August 2010."

If you're any good at arithmetic, you'll see the daily average is now 305 kms per day. Can you imagine?

I mentioned to Alan he could now sit back and rest on his laurels. Anything but - he's got a mountain of ideas some of which are as inspirational as his round the world record.

Keywin was very much involved. Alan used Keywin CRM pedals, bucket loads of Anti Chafing Cream (not suprisingly) and Muscle Cream to overcome strains, aches and pains which will always accompany efforts like this.

I would say that before I began the World Record attempt, a number of things really concerned me. This included the contact points on the bike as I would be spending so many hours in the saddle. Finding Keywin was a huge relief. I discovered the pedals I had been searching for: Ultra light, reliable, competitive, even with the extra load bearing of carrying my gear. The pedals performed amazingly under a lot of strain and in diverse terrain and climates. I never had a single problem.

The other nightmare for cyclists is the problem of saddle sores. Some riders have lost their careers in the past as a result of them. Spending up to 18 hours a day in the saddle meant great shorts and a good saddle just wasn't enough and Keywin's Anti-chafing cream was a daily necessity!

For the inevitable aches and pains, I used the muscle cream, especially during and after the truly tough days of climbing and headwinds, where recovery is a challenge. So, really, I would say Keywin should receive a new Guinness World Record for World beating products!

Yours in Sport,
Alan Bate
