Strictly embargoed 00.01 Monday 3rd April; Cycling star Mark Beaumont, best known for cycling around the world in 194 days in 2008, will take ultra-endurance to another level by circumnavigating the globe in less than half that time.

Beaumont will be attempting to travel 18,000 miles around the world, starting from Paris on Sunday 2 July. As a warm up to the Artemis World Cycle, he will first cycle around the coastline of Britain, leaving on 4th April. The 3,500 miles, 15-day training ride will be at 80 days pace, with Beaumont cycling for 16 hours and 240 miles per day.

As part of his mission to travel around the world in 80 days, breaking the current world record of 123 days, set by New Zealands Andrew Nicholson, the Scottish adventurer is raising funds for Orkidstudio, which works to benefit communities worldwide through innovative architecture and construction. The journey will also be tracked through Twinkl, a global educational platform for primary schools.
