Where are they today?

Yesterday I wrote about a number of record cycling attempts in progress or in the making. In our first update, Mark Beaumont has captured the 127-year-old British hour penny farthing record, coming in at 21.92 miles (35.28km). He was just 290 yards short of the world record of 22 miles and 150 yards (35.54km) set in 1886 by William Rowe.

Mike Broadwith, meanwhile, has entered Scotland on his quest to beat the record of 44 hours, 4 minutes and 20 seconds for Land’s End to John o’Groats. He’s currently encountering torrential downpours.

You can track Mike’s progress via Free Route.

Jenny Graham has just set out from Berlin on her quest to set the women’s unsupported round the world record at 110 days. Follow Jenny here on Track Leaders.

Finally, Ian To has arrived in Zagreb and is on his way to Ilok for the start of Hard Cro 2018.

Bike separation anxiety over! Next stop, Ilok! #hardcro #hardcro2018 #ultracycling #cycling
