An evening talk with a world record holder is always an opportunity to be grasped with both hands! Having missed out on a similar event in Edinburgh last year (blame the four way traffic lights at Doune!) I finally made it along - albeit delayed again thanks to more roadworks on the Queensferry Road - to hear Mark Beaumont speak about his incredible cycling journey around the world in 80 days. This is truly a feat to behold and a mark of incredible human endurance! It also served as great inspiration for my own cycling adventure later this year, and an amazing opportunity to meet Mark and take some lovely natural portraits of the event.
