Try this for a commute – 18,000 miles.


Mark Beaumont of Scotland very recently circled the globe by bike in 195 days, 6 hours. He carried 176 lb. on his bike and claimed that he would have been faster except for eating junk food in Australia and the U.S. He said that there were no other viable options. He needed 6000 calories per day so food was a huge concern.

His “tour” set a record for time around the world.

You can find further details about Mark and about his “world tour” at this webpage. The page includes a map of his journey and also a page about his background. It is very interesting and worth exploring – this fellow is a true modern adventurer.
