Mark Beaumont sets off to circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days
On 2 July, ultra-endurance athlete, and an ambassador for Bruce Stevenson Insurance Brokers, Mark Beaumont set off on his record breaking attempt to cycle around the world in just 80 days. In 2008 Mark successfully cycled around the world in 194 days, this time he will attempt to do it in less than half the time.
Inspired by Jules Verne’s classic adventure novel Around the World in Eighty days published in 1873, Mark will attempt to circumnavigate the globe over 144 years later by bicycle rather than balloon as he embarks on the Artemis World Cycle.
