Jenny Graham is more than halfway across Asia and closing in on 4,000 miles (currently 6,400km), as well as Krasnoyarsk. She’s suffered 8 punctures to date, but is still smiling.
Jenny set out on 16 June to attempt to set a women’s record of 110 days around the world, unsupported. She’s crossed five time zones already, and is in the process of conquering her eighth country, probably seeing more of Russia in the process then I’m ever likely to. Next on the list is Mongolia, after a swing around the southern horn of Lake Baikal.
Current location: Shushkovo, Russia
Miles covered so far: 3,954
5 times zones down and @jennygrahamis is powering across Russia. But it's not all been plain sailing this week… with 8 PUNCTURES!! and a fierce headwind taking there toll! #eastboundRTW pic.twitter.com/Z9iIxQjxyz

Vedangi, who hopes to one-up Jenny with an around-the-world effort of 100 days, is having visa trouble with (of all places) Canada. We wish her the best as we really want to see her make this effort! Plus we can’t wait to see photos of that ISEN All Seasons Bike in action!
Meanwhile meanwhile, Jasmijn Muller, Duracell Bunny on a Bike, has accepted the inexorable and put off her attempt on the women’s lejog record until more favorable weather, probably in September.
Today I had to make a tough decision. The weather is just too hot and winds not conducive for a @lejogrecord attempt before the school holidays. With no change in sight, I therefore have to postpone until September. Thanks for all support. #patience #stillpossible #learning pic.twitter.com/eopX97nbfS
