The Alt Tour



There's lots of amazing stories that will be told about Lachlan Morton and his Alt Tour journey. The numbers are astounding, so I've drawn together the data I have from the Tour de France as well as Lachlan's Strava account to bring you these charts. I'll update these across the remainder of Lachlan's ride, and you can keep up with the story as it evolves day by day at https://alttour.ef.com/.


Lachlan's ride is in aid of World Bicycle Relief, and you can support them here.

Distance vs climbed scatter plot

This chart compares the climbing metres of each day of riding with the distance travelled. The size of the circle is a ratio of vertical over distance to reflect average metres climbed per kilometre (larger circles being 'steeper').
