Mark Beaumont Tour - The Man who Cycled the World

The Man who Cycled the World is the remarkable story of adventurer Mark Beaumont. 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 will not only be cycling down the longest mountain range on the planet, but will also be climbing the continents 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.

"Truly inspiring, the sort of thing that makes you want to get off the couch, out of the
house and on the road

A true man of the world
