In 2008 Mark Beaumont, an adventurer from an early age, became the world record holder for the fastest circumnavigation of the world by bicycle – 18,296 miles in 194 days 17 hours, beating the previous record by an astonishing 81 days.

Continuing his adventures in 2010 Mark embarked on another ultra endurance solo journey he entitled 'Cycling the
Americas' and filmed his second BBC1 documentary. This particular 13,000 mile trip involved cycling from Alaska to Peru whilst climbing the two highest mountains in the Americas (Mt Mckinley and Aconcagua) along the way!

Mark has a passion for bringing his experiences to life and has developed a successful public speaking career across many areas including business, education and general lecture tours. He has recently completed a 38 venue lecture tour of the UK, has a successful book that has sold 40,000 copies worldwide (in its first year) and is currently writing about his experiences in the Americas.

Mark is LDC's first Corporate Ambassador and is Patron of the Saltire Foundation, Scotland’s leading intern and fellowship program. He also continues to raise money and awareness for the TUSK Trust and The Active Earth Foundation.

Mark will speak about his experiences of the past 24 months, brought to life by stunning photography of his trips, and will share the winning passions that drives him to complete such feats of endurance.

Mark will be signing copies of his recent bestselling book 'The Man Who Cycled the World'.
