Welcome to GlenBurmeister.com

Hi. Thanks for visiting my official website.
2003 was a good year. I walked the entire length of the Bibbulmun Track (600 miles) in Australia and cycled from Land’s End to John o’Groats (UK). My next dream would be to set a new Guinness World Record for cycling around the world! If anybody had told me that it would take me over 7 years before I completed another adventure then I would surely have given up. However, adventure is in my blood and I didn’t give up.

After seven years and thousands of pounds wasted on numerous aborted attempts, I finally set a new Guinness World Record by cycling between Europe’s southernmost and northernmost geographical points, Tarifa, Spain and North Cape, Norway. The following year I broke one for crossing the USA from north to south and west to east and I have been setting world records every year since.

I'm not sure how long this journey will last but for now, I'm loving every minute of it and plan to set at least another fifty world records over the next five years! I hope you have fun following my adventures and maybe find inspiration to tackle something yourself.
