1235 miles and 7 countries in 6 days. He's now moving through Latvia, helped by a favourable tailwind. Next stop Russia.

Stage 3 (North America) completed making a total of 16743 miles in 73 days. He's now heading for the airport in Nova Scotia for a flight to Portugal, then a ride up to the finish line in Paris.

He also bagged the Guinness World record for 'most miles cycled in a month' along the way.

Marks current position and his original leaving point are now on the same page.

Day 77 and he's heading over the Pyrenees into France. He's even hoping to finish a day early...but 'Around the World in 79 days' doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

Mark Beaumont should ride into Paris this evening after cycling the world in 79 days. I beleive it's on Facebook live, but other sources may decide to cover his arrival. Let's hope so.

18,000 miles across Europe, Asia, Australia, North America and back to Europe again. 240 miles per day.
