The man who cycled the World (and the Americas)

Mark Beaumont, star of the recent BBC television series 'the man who cycled the Americas' is currently touring the UK talking about his adventures navigating the globe on his bicycle.

In 2008, he broke the world record for cycling solo around the world, an epic journey of over 18,000 miles, cycling 100 miles per day for over half a year. In 2009, Mark set out on his second ultra-endurance solo challenge; to cycle the length of the American Cordillera. On this 13,000 mile expedition, Mark not only cycled down the longest mountain range on the planet but also climbed the continent's two highest peaks, Mt McKinley in Alaska and Aconcagua in Argentina, making his second self-filmed documentary for BBC1 - The Man who Cycled the Americas.

The Man who Cycled the World is Mark's story of his adventures, a personal rollercoaster of mental and physical endurance as well as a fascinating insight into the world we live in.

I didn't even realise he'd visited my home town of Eastbourne until I'd watched the third episode of his Americas programme, over one week later.

Looking at his tour dates, the only one within reasonable travelling distance that I can make is in Camberley on Sunday 9th May. I'm about to book a ticket for this but if anyone would like to join me on the 9th, please let me know.
