Eurasia cycling challenge - 2 world records in 70 days
About the challenge

On July 2nd, Jonas Deichmann will attempt to become the first person in history to cycle the entire landmass of Europe and Asia in just 70 days.

If he completes his mammoth challenge, Jonas will succeed in breaking 2 Guinness World Records – for being the fastest to cycle across both Europe (Cabo da Roca in Portugal to Ufa in Russia) and Eurasia (Cabo da Roca to Vladivostok in Russia) respectively.

Jonas will be raising money for the TDA Global Cycling Foundation – a humanitarian organization which provides bicycles to healthcare and community development workers in Africa and Asia.

His world record attempt is sponsored by Benify, a global HR-tech company specializing in innovative workplace solutions.
