The Global Bicycle Race will require riders to:
•Complete a provable minimum of 18,000 miles in generally the same direction (e.g. East).
•Use a GPS linked to the race website.
•Send a text message status and mileage update at least once a week.
•Take photos, video, and witness statements from around the world.
•Have valid travel/medical insurance for the whole event.
•Visit antipodal points (opposite sides of the world e.g. New Zealand and Spain).
•Co-operate with the event’s media partners.
•Stay on the same bike (parts may be replaced).
The start/finish will be in Greenwich Park, London – the prime meridian and home of Greenwich Mean Time. The winner should ideally finish just before the start of the 2012 Olympics (27th July). To this end the race will start 160 days before the Olympics on Saturday 18th February 2012.
