Mark Beaumont set out to make this Victorian fiction a two wheeled reality.

Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000 mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day.

Over the past decade Mark’s epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, into the Arctic, the high mountains and around the Commonwealth, also surviving capsize in the mid-Atlantic.

Tonight’s talk, films and photographs, give a fascinating insight into Mark’s career of adventure.
