There would be nothing officially wrong if I rode my 18,000 miles through America and Australia and provided I beat 163 days, I would be the new world record holder. This however, would not really be in the spirit of the race, cycling around the world without going through all major continents didn't seem right, so my rough route through all major continents (except that icy one) is as follows:
My route starts in Greenwich, London where I head south to Portsmouth. From there I get a ferry to France and head for Morocco. After a stint in Morocco I head over to South America and head north towards Peru. I will then cycle across the USA (hopefully Route 66) to LA. I then fly to New Zealand and then on to Australia where I will cycle up the East coast. On from Australia I head to Singapore and up to Bangkok. From here I fly to India and cycle from Calcutta to Mumbai. I then catch my last flight to Istanbul and cycle all the way back to London just in time for the Olympics (hopefully a new world record holder).
If anyone is able to give me some useful information, or even just something that you think is interesting or funny about anywhere I may be passing through then head to the 'Help Sean' page, where you can submit them to me to get a dedicated tweet and Facebook post so that I can help spread the word as well.
