A cyclist who is attempting to beat the world record for pedalling around the globe has reached New Zealand for the fifth leg of his journey.
Mark hopes to beat the previous record by more than two months
Mark Beaumont, who lives in Edinburgh's New Town, set off from the Champs Elysees in Paris on 5 August in an attempt to shatter the 276-day record.
The 25-year-old is on track to beat the world record and has just completed a gruelling trek across Australia.
On his official website he wrote that the scenery was amazing.
Mark has been cycling more than 100 miles a day on his arduous journey.
After just 97 days, he had reached the halfway point in South Australia after crossing Europe and South East Asia.
Despite dealing with chronic saddle sores, stifling heat, rain and snakes, he remains confident of circumnavigating the globe in 210 days.
