The Man Who Cycled the Americas

by Mark Beaumont

eBooks of the Month The Real World Travel

The Man Who Cycled the Americas Synopsis

31,000 miles. 22,840 feet high. 34 countries. 15 months. 2 amazing journeys. In 2008, Mark Beaumont smashed the world record for cycling around the world, by an astonishing 81 days. His race against the clock took him through the toughest terrain and the most demanding of conditions. In 2009, Mark set out on his second ultra-endurance challenge. And this one would involve some very big mountains. To pedal the longest mountain range on the planet, solo and unsupported, presented its own unique difficulties. But no man had ever previously summited the continents' two highest peaks, Mt McKinley in Alaska and Aconcagua in Argentina, in the same climbing season, let alone cycling between them. Oh, and Mark had never even been up Ben Nevis before.
