I tried to follow the links but found the video's no longer available. Although, it seems like it would be kinda hard to cycle across the oceans... :thumbsup:

From link 1 "The Man Who Cycled the World: Episode 1 is no longer available. Programmes are available for a limited number of days after broadcast." As Wildabeast, has advised us.

Since the links are no longer available this topic is closed.
