Around the World in 91 Days on a Bike

A remarkable achievement today from Mike Hall, who travelled 24,900 miles and biked 18,000 of them through 20 countries and four continents. That’s 200 miles a day. He did it by traveling light and stopping to eat at places like McDonalds. He won the World Cycle Race Grand Tour, shattered the previous record, AND it was his birthday.

He did it on a disc brake road bike.
