    Not only did they record their adventure by video, but there is a blog, and photo collection, that shares the expedition in more detail. The videos, and photos, are a stunning testiment to the beauty, and variety of the world they travelled, from the weather, roads, and cultures they encountered, to the health, and political dificulties they endured, and more. What I truly enjoyed most were the wide variety of bicycles encountered in every country they passed through. Agree, or disagree, about the issue of Global Warming, a visit with the story these travelers have to tell will be time well spent.

Well done on this fantastic achievement. Not sure what it would have achieved for green awareness or whether you guys got paid a fantastic amount in the end but you certainly should have been. What an amazing journey you guys must have taken, and scary at times I'm sure. Well done.

The 2 cyclists got nothing for their work. No TV channel was interested in broadcasting their story (not enough conflict they said) so I made it and put it online.
