Mark Beaumont cycles round the world in 78 days!

An amazing effort. I met Mark Beaumont back in 2013 near Loch Katrine up in The Trossachs National Park, Scotland. He had just completed a section of the 230 miles from Arran to Aberdeen he was doing by foot and in the water, in only 10 days to raise money for the STV Appeal’s fight against child poverty in Scotland. True to his reputation and as seen in the video above he was affable to the end and did not hesitate in agreeing to have his picture snapped with me.

This time round Mark has set out to raise £80,000 for Orkidstudio which is a grass-roots organisation with a mission to benefit communities through innovative architecture and construction and create social enterprises that sustain these communities.
