We can announce that Mark Beaumont has kindly agreed to be patron for our expedition. The backing of such an influential figure in cycle touring is wonderful for our expedition so many thanks to Mark. Mark has cycled round the world, completing the 18,297 miles in just 194 days and 17 hours - a world record at the time. His cycling adventures have been the subject of a BBC documentary and he has raised a substantial amount of money for charity. Mark has offered his enthusiastic support to our expedition this summer:

"Sailing, cycling, kayaking and climbing from the UK to Morocco... what an inspired challenge! I have no doubt that for everyone involved and for those following it will be a real voyage of discovery. Best of luck"
