Cycling around the world in 80 days

Where: Pittville Pump Room, Cheltenham

When: Friday, May 3, 7.30pm

Around the World in 80 Days: 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.

Showing films and photography, this event will provide a fascinating insight into Mark's career of adventure.

The evening is presented by Speakers from the Edge. For more information and tickets, visit the Cheltenham Town Hall website.
