Members recently attended a special evening at the Parc & Dare Theatre where Twice around the world cyclist Mark Beaumont visited the Rhondda venue, as part of his British Isles stage tour.
Mark from Scotland is currently the world record holder with just 78 days to circumnavigate the planet, an incredible feat. He’s also achieved many other adventures such as cycling the Americas north to south as well as cycling the length of Africa.
To set a 78 day & 14 hour world record Mark was spending 16 hours in the saddle and clocking up 240 miles every day to complete the 18,000 mile challenge that started and ended in Paris.
As well as speaking on stage with film and photo footage, Mark was keen to meet with the audience supporting his event, especially the local cycling club and was pleased to line up with ACME members for the above photo and sign books.
