Episode 027: Dr Ian Walker / Nordkapp To Tarifa In 17 Days

In 2015 I cycled from Tarifa in Spain – the southernmost point of mainland Europe – to Nordkapp in Norway – the northernmost point. It took me over 100 days.  In 2019 Dr Ian Walker – an academic at the University of Bath – completed the journey in the opposite directionโ€ฆ in 16 days 20 hours and 59 minutes. In the process he became the fastest person ever to cycle across Europe north to south. Thatโ€™s no mean feat for a man in his mid-forties who had only taken up ultra-long-distance racing a few years prior to breaking the record. I needed to find out how he did itโ€ฆ
