This was the first of a series of challenges for Sam as he prepares for the launch of the expedition Lap the World in September when he sets off from his hometown of Halesowen to travel entirely around the world using only a human power. By cycling 18,000 miles & rowing 14,000 nautical miles Sam will break 9 Guinness World records and he aims to raise £240,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
