Mark is the world record-holder for fastest circumnavigation of the globe on a bicycle, having completed the feat in just 78 days. He has made a career of daring adventures, like cycling the Americas or rowing across the mid-Atlantic. He has also broadcast his expeditions, producing documentaries for Global Cycling Network and the BBC, as well as books that chronicle his journeys.
In this episode, Mark shares what drives him to attempt these incredible feats of athleticism, the role of media and storytelling in his expeditions, and how he applies the lessons of his adventures to his work as an investor and entrepreneur.
