When you’re talking bike touring it doesn’t get much more epic than this epic one from Bombtrack. A multi-country journey spanning five countries took Marc Maurer on a 5,600km journey from Turkey to Iran. The things seen on a trip like this and the determination to finish it are sure to be life changing. For me this is something I would do in a heart beat and you can read up on the whole trip here after watching the full feature…
1,900 km on a track bike is no easy feat but then again what Hardbrakers trip is ever a walk in the park. Follow the dudes on their ten day journey from Lisbon to Marrakesh with the full release May 26th and be sure to check out more of their epic rides for some summer adventure stoke…
“United by the common love for fast cycling with one gear only, the Hardbrakers hit the road yearly since 2012 for a mostly two-week “Grandtour”. Driven by wanderlust and longing for adventure they went from Lisbon to Marrakech in 2014. 1.900 km in 10 days on track bikes. Limits were tested and overcome. Countless tires were changed. The crew sweated in the desert sun and killed mile after mile. A sense of freedom. Regardless if in the desert, mountains, cities, on dirt roads or highways: one gear fits all!”
The 300 mile ride from Paris to London is nothing groundbreaking but looks fun as ever with the Barcelona On Bikes crew. They knock it out in style here as they get the ball rolling on their newly formed project. Check them out to stay in the loop as the adventures continue!
When en route to Yosemite from just about anywhere, it’s safe to say hitting the tree line is a special moment. After miles and miles of open road the smell of fresh pine hints that you’re well on your way. The trees still stood as a reminder that there was plenty of climbing ahead, though we were well ready for the hustle. These few were some of my favorites from our ascent into the hills and through the trees on the Official Park Ragers trip!
Sometimes life gets in the way of things and surely that’s how it’s been here as of late. Looking for some motivation to get back into the swing of things, I revisited the photos from the #officialparkragers trip to Yosemite back in May. Rather than sharing all of what I have I’ll be uploading some of my favorites over the next few weeks. Here’s my Tristen and John putting as we put in some miles on the first (and longest) day of the trip!
When it comes to bike adventures the Cycle Me Home crew are more seasoned than most. After an epic trip through Transylvania last year they’re just about ready to share their trip with the world. With music sampled from local musicians and more plenty of great visuals this is one not to miss. Check back for the full version and hit CMH in the meantime!
After a couple years in the making the Hardbrakers are finally ready to share their most epic bike adventure with the world. It’s no joke taking on the 1000+ mile journey from Budapest to Istanbul but it sure looks worth every crank turn. Sit back, crack a cold one and grab a little inspiration from the Hardbrakers!
