300kms since Chita, Zabaykalsky Krai, Russia
While currently riding through the picturesque buddhist enclave Agin Buriat Okrug in the Russian Federation, and approaching Mongolia, I have finally decided to announce the future Nexus route, which will go through Chile!
Indeed, in order to comply with the current definition of a Human Powered True Circumnavigation , my future route needs to reach two antipodes (two diametrically opposite places on earth).
I have studied the antipode map for quite some time and have decided that the two most logical points, in accordance with my current route are:
1st antipode: N 47 8979 E 106.6470
Location: West of Ulan Bataar, Mongolia, which I plan to reach in the next few weeks.
2d antipode: S47 8979 W73.3529
Location: Caleta Yungay, southern Chile, which I plan to reach in the next few years.
Needless to say that this additional loop into South America is definitely going to add a substantial amount of biking time to the expedition.
Well, on this note, let's keep going and enjoy the ride!
