On 24th July 2015 Peter Adam Smith departed from Dumfries, Scotland in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for circumnavigating the globe by bicycle and be the first person to complete this journey in under 100 days. Supported by 3 young volunteers to make sure everything, off the Bike, ran smoothly.
The route consisted of 13 countries, travelling East to West, through Europe> Russia> Kazakhstan> China …….?
This exhibition, taken by one of those volunteers, Sam Finch, from Dumfries, is a photo documentary of Smith’s attempt to cycle the world. Finch’s work captures the grandeur of the landscape traversed, the pain & the loneliness of Smith’s attempt and the everyday process of this epic journey.
