Mike Hall, a 31 year old British man, has just cycled 18,000 miles around the world unsupported. In 91 days and 18 hours
The previous unsupported record was 163 days, held by Vin Cox
. The previous record for a supported trip was 106 days.
Hall celebrated his 31st birthday on arrival in Greenwich, London, today. He did not find the 200 miles a day the record required easy going
. Apart from breaking his bike while riding in Albania
, he suffered no real issues while riding through 20 countries. Hall was racing in the World Cycle Racing Grand Tour, which left London on the 18th February. The next fastest competitor is still in India
If you're interested, his charity donation page is here. Amazingly, he hasn't actually raised that much cash.
