Is at it again.
Planning to cycle round the world in 80 days.
I was just reading that: Guiness have changed the rules to include travel time and this time he's doing it supported.
On a side note; does anyone know why Mike Hall's record was never ratified?
Blimey - he is going to be replying on a lot of border guards to make passage simple. All it would take is one days delay at any of the borders and his attempt is over. Good luck to him, but I wonder what Julian Sayarer will have to say this time.
Mark Beaumont.......That man does like a challenge
It looks like he will be using his Koga Solicio Di2 again. The same bike he used on the Africa Challenge. I see he is going through Invercargill, the home of Burt Munro of Worlds fastest Indian fame.
Thats another jersey and book I will have to buy. Im glad he is using the same bike, because I like mine.
Just saw this on the Beeb.
I wonder if he'll send cars ahead to try to smooth things out?
Does anyone know the schedule for the prequel ride around Britain as it would be great to give him a cheer
Ask and then you will find it!!! I think I've found the site http://www.artemisworldcycle.com
That's an impressive website. A model in how to get publicity.
Funny you should say that. MB has done some impressive things but that phrase pretty much sums him up.
I wonder how long you could do the journey and enjoy it, take in the sites and views, meet people etc.
If he's doing 75 days cycling plus 15 in airports etc...add another 50 and maybe another 75 for cycling at a more reasonable rate...215 days?
where did he start from for his round britain ? see he is down to folkstone now, I will be a while before he heads down northumberland but I might go and wish him well. Is there a route map of his route ?
Ignore that, I thought the days would link to a more detailed plan, they don't.
He was on BBC Newsround today when my kids were watching, so he is getting maximum publicity from as many sources as possible.
He set off from London and is going anti clockwise.
Every time i click onto this thread i keep hoping it'll be about the ex-NME journalist.
