Global Revolution

After more than 11 weeks in the saddle, passing through Europe, Russia, Australia and the US, Scottish cycling superstar Mark Beaumont has completed his round the world in 80 days challenge, shattering the existing record by 44 days and earning the title for the fastest circumnavigation by bicycle.
 
After crossing the finishing line in Paris this evening, Charlie Smith, VisitScotland Director of Marketing, said: ““Mark has cycled his way in the history books, smashing two Guinness World records in the process. He has shown extraordinary spirit and, has not only inspired me, but more importantly millions of children around the world who have followed his incredible journey. He is a Scottish hero.
 
“We, like the entire country, are incredibly proud of what Mark has achieved and we wish to thank him for being a fantastic ambassador for Scotland, promoting our amazing country to all he met.”
