Slightly off topic today, but you can choose your own wine to toast Mark Beaumont. He’s just become the fastest man to cycle his way around the world. 18,000 miles in 195 days, by himself. It was a crazy adventure and not without peril and incident, including being run over.
For those of you geeky enough to want to read about the bike and the kit he took it’s all here. (I know you’re out there, my Google stats tell me people find this blog looking for such phrases as ‘cycling bum rash’ and ‘cycling feet blisters smell’).
