16 hours + 240 miles @ Day = Around the World in 80 Days on a Bicycle


To celebrate Cardtronics’ expansion to two new continents and four new countries over the last 12 months, we’re going around the world – on a bicycle – with British long-distance athlete, broadcaster, and ambassador Mark Beaumont.

Beaumont, known for cycling around the world in 194 days in 2008, will attempt – beginning July 3 – to break the existing cycling around-the-world record by more than 40 days. Cardtronics is a corporate sponsor of Beaumont’s global attempt, the Artemis World Cycle. Beaumont completed a successful training ride around the coastline of Great Britain that began April 4 and ended April 18.  The 3,500 mile training ride tested the feasibility of the pace of cycling for 16 hours and 240 miles per day that is needed to complete circumnavigation in 80 days.

Joining Beaumont (at left in the photo above) for a portion of his training ride was Lewis Bruce, QA engineer at i-design Ltd., a subsidiary of Cardtronics located in Dundee, Scotland.  The two stopped at one of Cardtronics’ Cashzone ATMs at a Shell Dundee Discovery petrol station located near i-design’s offices.

Over the last year, Cardtronics, whose European headquarters are in the United Kingdom, has expanded to Spain, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Check back with us in early July when we’ll start tracking Beaumont’s progress around the world.
