Africa Solo : My World Record Race from Cairo to Cape Town (Paperback) (Mark Beaumont)
About this item
In the spring of 2015, Mark Beaumont set out on his latest world record attempt—solo, the length of Africa, intending to ride to Cape Town in under 50 days. Seven years after smashing the world record for cycling round the world, this was his toughest trip yet. He completed the journey in just 41 days, 10 hours, and 22 minutes. From the obvious dangers of Egypt, Sudan, and Kenya, over the muddy, mountainous roads of Ethiopia, through the beautiful grasslands of Tanzania and Zambia, to riding at night in Botswana in the company of elephants and giraffes, Mark brings Africa to life while inspiring us all to question the bounds of what is possible.
