In 2008, Mark Beaumont smashed the world record for cycling around the world, by an astonishing 81 days. This title tells the story of a 15,000 mile expedition that once again broke the barriers of human achievement. It offers a trip through the diverse cultures of the Americas.
The Man Who Cycled the Americas tells the story of Mark Beaumont’s 15,000 miles and eight months’ long journey from Anchorage in Alaska to Ushuaia on the Tierra del Fuego, scaling along the way the highest peaks of the Americas: Mount McKinley and Aconcagua.

The challenge, undertaken one year after Beaumont became The Man Who Cycled the World and eventually presented in a BBC documentary, is described with the author’s characteristic love of adventure, the exhilaration of taking on tough mental and physical challenges and appreciation of the diverse cultures and landscapes of the Americas.
