Bicycling Trip in South America

In 2009, I started tracking my cycling mileage on a Google Maps fake trip around the world:

North America: Durham to Alaska, 10/8/09 - 2/21/12, 4,629 miles
Australia: Sydney to Perth, 2/23/12 - 4/27/13, 2,473 miles
Asia, Part 1: Singapore to New Delhi, 5/21/13 - 1/3/15, 3,902 miles
Asia, Part 2: New Delhi to Istanbul, 1/3/15 - 7/26/16, 3,586 miles
Europe: Istanbul to Tarifa, 7/26/16 - 8/28/17, 2,576 miles
Africa, Part 1: Tangier to Lagos, 8/30/17 - 5/27/19, 4,049 miles
Africa, Part 2: Lagos to Cape Town, 5/27/19 - 3/21/21, 4,551 miles
South America: Ushuaia to Turbo, 6,374 miles
North America return: Yaviza to Raleigh, approx 4,200 miles

That's 25,600 miles completed so far, with about 10,500 miles remaining. If I keep my pace up, my fake circumnavigation of the world will be completed in 2025 or 2026.

Weekly average distance for each trip to date:
North America: 37.4 miles per week
Australia: 40.3 miles per week
Asia Part 1: 46.1 miles per week
Asia Part 2: 44.0 miles per week
Europe: 45.3 miles per week
Africa Part 1: 44.5 miles per week
Africa Part 2: 48.0 miles per week
