To celebrate the opening of the Motorhome & Caravan Show, endurance cyclist Mark Beaumont has been demonstrating an alternative way of towing a caravan...with his bicycle!
Beaumont has become a household name through his documentaries about ultra-endurance and adventure. Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000-mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day. His epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, into the Arctic, the high mountains and around the Commonwealth, also surviving capsize in the mid-Atlantic.
The stunt took place outside Hall 16, using a 700kg caravan, ahead of his appearance at the Freedom to Go theatre, where he gave a talk about his epic adventures.
The Motorhome & Caravan Show will run until 20th October.
