As many of you already know, I did it - Mission accomplished in record breaking time.
In fact I had made it to all 4 corners in 20 days, but, my actual challenge was to replicate the journey set by my Indian predecessor in 2016, and circumnavigate the 4 corners, travelling the coastline of India, then returning to my original starting point. Well, I achieved what I set out to do and smashed the record by completing the full circumference of India, visiting all 4 corners in just 23 days! Taking 11 days off the existing record.
This has certainly been my most challenging ride yet and I look forward to sharing more details with you all soon.
I slept for 12 hours upon my return to Chandigarh on Sunday 26th August and have found it strange since then,… not just getting up each day and getting back out there on the bike.
And, what a bike she is!
I put that Himalayan through hell and she coughed and spluttered a few times when I tried to convince her she was a boat in fact worse - a submarine at times!
I cannot say it enough I truly endorse the Royal Enfield - Himalayan. She is now officially known as Indianna - after all we did go through a crusade together.

This journey/challenge has been one of exploration in more ways than one!
It has also been an amazing opportunity to demonstrate that none of us should underestimate ourselves and the power of community, whether that be our immediate community or those further a field.

THANK YOU, each and everyone of you for your continued support throughout this challenge.
I assure you, your goodwill and words of inspiration (even the sarcastic ones, especially the sarcastic ones!) kept me going.
In a very short space of time we have surpassed my fundraising target and once again demonstrated the difference each of us can make when we unite for a common cause. x

It’s now been 17 days since I commenced the challenge and I'm feeling pretty good after completing the 3rd and most southerly corner yesterday - Kanyakumari. The previous week saw meet reach Tezu for my 2nd corner, which proved to be a really tough corner to reach. The roads were abysmal and after losing access to any form of navigational system I was forced to rely on my gut instinct (fairly empty gut) and my rapidly dwindling faith to guide me through some of the most horrendous roads and weather conditions I have ever experienced.
I was relieved to finally be out of the bottle neck of the Eastern corner and hopefully getting closer to the use of some reliable navigation again. I have definitely felt challenged both mentally and physically but I am feeling totally motivated by the speed in which I am getting through this and looking forward to the homeward stretch now.

It's been an eventful week so far, with the challenge being forced upon before planned!
So one corner done and the next underway.
The riding has been some of the toughest I've ever experienced with weather, traffic, road conditions and then the bike breaking down too. I lost communication with the outside world for several days as a result of being at the Top of the World and then as I left the mountains, Vodafone also decided to keep me isolated because they believed I had been in Pakistan! Got that sorted and managed to get 13 hours in the saddle yesterday to cover 830 kms. Having some extra issues today, with GPS & maps failing me along with the charging unit on the bike.
All part of the challenge!
