Erden Eruc human powered circumnavigation: 3 days to the finish line

Erden Eruc started his human powered circumnavigation from Bodega Bay near San Francisco, California. Since then he traveled by boat, bicycle and boots around the world. Today he has 3 days left to the finish line, his start point. He is expected to arrive at the Spud Point Marina between 4 and 5 PM on Saturday, July 21st.

To claim a circumnavigation, Erden kept the following in mind:

A basic definition of a world circumnavigation is an around-the-world journey on a route which:

• begins and ends at the same location,
• travels in one general direction, and
• reaches a pair of antipodes.

So, what are antipodes?

The antipodes of any place on the Earth is the place that is diametrically opposite it, so a line drawn from the one to the other passes through the centre of the Earth and forms a true diameter. For example, the antipodes of New Zealand's lower North Island lies in Spain. Most of the Earth's land surfaces have ocean at their antipodes, this being a consequence of most land being in the land hemisphere. (Wikipedia)
