Programme 1 - Extra Videos!
We hope you really enjoyed Mark's first programme, North America. Don't forget you can watch it again on iPlayer for the next three weeks. There's an extra special treat here for everyone. Three exclusive videos that Mark filmed on the road from Alaska to the US/Mexico border.
Video, Wild Camping
Mark tries to find a quiet spot to pitch his tent off the highway in the Wastach Mountains of Utah, USA. Camping out can be difficult and dangerous in parts of the United States as wild animals and natives can be very territorial.
Video, Sign Post Forest
Mark stops at the remarkable Sign Post Forest at Watson Lake in the Yukon, Canada. The forest was started in 1942 by a homesick soldier who marked the way to his home with a simple sign. Now over 65,000 signs have been put up in the forest by travellers along the Alaska Highway.
Video, Lonely Restaurant
To cycle the massive distance of the Americas, Mark has to consume over three times the calories of a normal adult male. That means eating lots of large meals, but dining solo in restaurants also serves as a reminder of how far away from home he is.
