The unsupported cycling expedition through Egypt Sudan Ethiopia Kenya Tanzania Zambia Botswana and South Africa is as thrilling to read as it sounds Many times my heart was in my mouth anticipating injuries delays and danger Especially when he says my gut told me not to trust him Throwing caution to the wind No Mark I hear myself pleading I am relieved when he finds a motel I can imagine the taste of the delicious food Feel the sandstorm See the elephants and galloping giraffe alongside What particularly resonated with me was Mark s description of how to stay motivated as an ultra endurance athlete To understand the big picture but to focus on daily input which is simple what to eat what you need to drink how much you need to recover and how long to spend on the bike Not to base your mindset and contentment in your success each day But if you realize that over weeks and months these daily mileages will average themselves out as long as you put in the same effort each day

Africa Solo

Read Africa Solo Africa Solo Read & Download ò 104 review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook × Mark Beaumont At will fascinate and grip the readerFrom the obvious dangers of Egypt Sudan and Kenya over the unpaved muddy mountainous roads of Ethiopia through the beautiful grasslands of Tanzania and Zambia to riding at night in Botswana in the company of elephants and giraffes Mark brings Africa to life in all its complex glory friendship and curiosity while inspiring us all to uestion the bounds of what is possible. I stumbled across Africa Solo at a book sale and bought it with no knowledge of who Mark was what he did and without any knowledge whatsoever of enduro cycling The reason I was interested in reading it was because I wanted to learn about cycling and the off the touirst pamphlet details of the African countries Mark rode through on his world record attempt Africa Solo achieved those two goals for me and much You have to consider for a moment what a challenge it is to put together 320 pages of interesting content to read when much of Mark s journey was just pedalling away through arid and featureless landscapes Yet every single day is its own small adventure Mark did incredibly well to tease out the moments in each day that gave them thrill and character and set them apart from the day before and the day after even though he was essentially repeating the same task day in and day out The book is written really well with some beautiful descriptive language used that allows you to fully grasp the people countries and moments being described as well as capture the emotions that Mark went through in his world record attempt It also comes across as a very honest reflection on each country the people as well as the claims of previous world record holders on how supported or unsupported they were on their rides through AfricaThis is a fun fast paced interesting and informative read Loved it

In 2008 Mark Beaumont obliterated the record for cycling around the world taking 82 days off the previous total Then followed another ride through the Americas including climbing the highest peaks in Alaska and Argentina This was followed by an attempt to row the Atlantic that nearly ended in disaster For this trip he was glad to be back on the bike to attempt breaking the record for the fastest journey from Cairo to Capetown but this would be the toughest of the lotIt is a continent that is full of danger and beauty wild storms and majestic animals On his fast journey he encountered all sort of terrains from scorching deserts smooth tarmac rolling hills and roads reduced to uagmire with the torrential rains he encountered He had moments of joy and some really low points when he suffered food poisoning He was aiming to ride a minimum of 150 miles a day to beat the previous record of 59 days The speed that he was moving through the countries meant that he had little time to interact with the local populations just enough to find places to sleep and the find the enormous amount of food that a challenge of this magnitude meant that he had to consume every day Most of the people he met were warm generous and delightful occasionally soured by the odd group of stone throwing children and one attempted robbery It is an enjoyable book to read as you share his elation and pain on this charge through Africa There is less on the interaction with the native people but when you consider the pace that he had set himself for the record attempt it was unlikely that he would have a huge amount of time available It is a personal journey too as he is not at home when really needed the most and he agony of being there is uite poignant Once again Beaumont has shown that he is a top class endurance athlete in this charge through Africa in his attempt to break the record and if you liked his previous books this one will be right up your street too
