Catie FriendOh oh oh, Kate, Leysa, AnnChristina, Rachael - let's squeeze some of this in too. Maybe we could get Mark Beaumont to join us for a celebrity leg of our Scotland tour! (We'd weigh him down with all our kit, to stop him going too fast...!) How about September next year, girls?

Old Biddy on a BikeFabulous route. I did South and North Uist last year and it was amazing so hope to do this next. I have just finished cycling from home (Newtownards in NI) to Orkney after seeing your NC500 route. I do it at a slightly more leisurely pace.

Ray D. ChaplinWhat an amazing achievement indeed! And after all that still made time for all those wanting to chat with you or a photo with you, while your family stood patiently by. A great achievement, a great day, and a great example you set. Keep it up Mark!

Chris OldhamMark you've done the things I wish I'd done at your age if I'd just had your determination and abilities, which makes you a pain for your boast, but you always manage to do it in such a polite and unassuming way. This slight insult is of course intended as a genuine compliment, out of absolute envy and respect. I will be reading (and without doubt enjoying) your book tomorrow. Sub 1000 hours to do Africa top to tail, whilst negotiating giraffes and elephants, just wow!!!
