Just found out that the latest person to break the world record for cycling around the world in the fastest time (Vin Cox, 163 days, 6 hours, 58 minutes) is organising a race around the world. It will start from London in February 2012, 160 days before the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
Tempting, very tempting. Obviously I wouldn’t win even on a regular bike. But I do wonder if Guinness World Records would make a record for fastest time cycling around the world on a Brompton folding bike?
Going to have to look into this a bit more…!
