Mark Beaumont Tour – Thoroughly Recommended
here's his tour dates, but not sure if there's any in North Wales:Posted 7 years ago
Just been to see Mark Beaumont talk about his round the world trip and travel across the Americas. Fascinating insight into the whole experience, some great pics, stories and insights into both adventures. He is an engaging speaker and came across as a thoroughly nice guy, albeit one who is incredibly determined in the face of some almost impossible challenges – cycled for a month into an incredibly strong headwind at one stage(forget now how strong he said it was, but at one stage 100km/hour). If you get the chance to see him on his UK tour then go, but be quick as tonight was sold out.Posted 7 years ago
I saw him in Camberley last night, really enjoyed his talk, it was great hearing the extra bits about how he had to film for tv too, even more respect for him.
Had a quick chat with him before the show too …very nice unassuming guy seemed quite happy to pass the time of day.Posted 7 years agoBigJohnSubscriber
We're off to see him on Saturday in Stafford.
Normally Mrs BigJohn & I are the only people who ride our bikes into Stafford for a night out. I get the feeling the bike racks outside the Gatehouse Theatre will be full that night.
And Saturday co-incides with the end of my 7th week of riding at least an hour a day.Posted 7 years ago
We were at the venue about 45 mins before he was due to start talking (because there is a bar in the foyer) and Mark was in the reception area happily chatting as well as signing books & selling shirts etc (or his mum was doing the selling), so if you are kicking around early its worth dropping byPosted 7 years ago
tommid, I didnt phrase it exactly like that but did say that the documentries showed him complaining a fair bit … he agreed & said that for the round the world he had no input about the editing & they did it showing max impact … ie when he was suffering most. He also said that he wrote every word of the book & he felt it portrayed what actually happened better. His first hour was a lot like the book & helped flesh out his experiences.
The talk was 19.30 – 20.30, then 30 mins interval. Then 21.00 – 22.00.Posted 7 years agomissingfrontallobeMember
Just finished reading the book, not award winning material, but enough for me to sit and read it over the space of a couple of days. Jealous that he has managed/planned his life to mean such tours are part & parcel of his life, can't blame the guy for having off days & moaning sometimes, I'm sure I woould as well!
Even MrsMFL became a fan when the North-south america tour was on the beeb the other month.Posted 7 years agoSTATOMember
Saw him in South-Shields last week, really enjoyable if you like hearing about travel and adventure. I dont think every show is exactly the same as he is refining his style as he gets more practice but content is generally same i think. Best thing (if your buying a book to get signed) is they sell the books normal prices rather than hugely inflated. Also, he has RTW cycle tops for sale too i think, wish id realised at time as i would have got one of those instead of a book (already had it and forgot to take it)Posted 7 years ago
