British cyclist breaks round the world record
Mike Hall celebrated his thirty-first birthday last week by breaking a world record and completing a round-the-world bicycle trip. Cycling a total of 18,000 miles in 91 days and 18 hours, he smashed the previous record by a fortnight. Despite this incredible achievement, he's confident he could do it in less than 80 next time around, though he has no plans to attempt that.
Although this was part of a competitive event, and Mike finished thousands of miles ahead of his nearest rivals, his main reason for doing this was to raise money for charity. He'll set off again in May next year when he'll cycle across Vietnam.
