Charity talk in Edinburgh
Cyclist Mark planning his next big ride
Cyclist Mark Beaumont dropped strong hints about his next adventure during a talk in Edinburgh.
The record-breaker told an audience of 300 at Edinburgh Academy that he was looking towards his next long distance ride – but declined to give away details of the route.
Speaking afterwards he told Daily Business that “all will be revealed later this year”.
He was joined at the Academy by fellow adventurer Craig Mathieson (near right) who takes groups of teenagers on expeditions to the icecaps through the Polar Academy charity.
Hw has just returned from Greenland with a group of 10 schoolchildren from St Augustine’s, Liberton, Gracemount, Forrester and Tynecastle High.
Daily Business is a supporter of the Polar Academy.
