British cyclist James Bowthorpe recently rode his bike across the globe and broke the world record in the process. Bowthorpe trekked over 18,000 miles without a support team on a trip that took him to twenty countries including France, Poland, Iran, India, Thailand, Australia and the United States. Averaging 103 miles per day Bowthorpe beat the old world record by 20 days. The purpose of the trip was to raise 1.8 million pounds for Parkinson research.
