Ep. 705: Cycling Around the World in 80 Days - Mark Beaumont

Powered by RedCircle

Growing up on a farm in Scotland and being homeschooled until the age of 12 isn’t exactly the childhood you’d expect from an accomplished world-traveling adventurer that Mark has become. 

Or is it? 

Today we get to hear Mark put together the pieces of his earliest motivations, his two circumnavigations of the world by bicycle, and the idea behind his latest book, Endurance: How to Cycle Further.

Other accomplishments by Mark (not exhaustive)

  • Recipient of the British Empire Medal
  • Bicycled around the world twice
  • The fastest being 79 days, a Guinness World Record
  • Bicycled from Anchorage Alaska to Ushuaia Argentina
  • Bicycled from Cairo, Egypt to Cape Town, South Africa in 42 days (world record)
