The Ultimate Long Distance Challenge

While I’ve been laid up ill with Mumps, I’ve caught up with some of the programmes I’ve captured with Sky+. Last night I watched the final episode of “The man who cycled the world”, which followed Mark Beaumont, a Scots lad, who cycled the prescribed 18,000 miles in 195 days;...


LEJOG Planning
