Ultra-endurance specialist Mike Hall will be talking about his amazing round-the-world record ride at the first Thrillseeking Adventure presentation night at Dalby Bike Barn on Monday November 26.
Riding solo and completely unsupported, the 31-year-old from Harrogate earlier this year set a new official record for riding a bike round the world. He finished in Greenwich on June 4 after riding over 18,000 miles in 91 days and 18 hours, smashing the previous record.
Mike will be giving an insight into his preparation, bike setup, travel issues, the people he met and places he visited as he rode 200 miles on average per day. Want to know the best and worst places in the world to ride a bike? That’s just a small part of Mike’s talk.
Mike has also completed the 2,745-mile Tour Divide Race down the Rockies through Canada and the USA to Mexico and will kick off his talk with an account of that epic ride.
Adrian Carter the MD of Pace Cycles will also give an insight into the ancient 500-mile Pilgrimage trail, the ‘Camino De Santiago’ across Spain which he and his wife Cathy completed in 2011.
The evening is in aid of Mike’s charity ride Cycle a Difference which is raising funds for Newborns Vietnam, a UK charity dedicated to reducing neonatal mortality in South East Asia, with a specific focus on Vietnam.
The evening will include food and a complimentary drink courtesy of Pace Cycles.
