GlobeRiders: Eurasian Odyssey
The ride of all rides - It begins in China when a dozen motorcyclists lead by Photojournalist and Adventurer, Helge Pedersen, set out from Shanghai to ride across the largest landmass on the planet. They head north through the densely populated cites of China, crossing the Great Wall and doing battle with the elements, mechanical breakdowns and non-existent roads. Crossing the border from Inner Mongolia into Russia, they head west across the vast Siberian Taiga-riding thousands of miles across eight time zones covered with endless forest and scattered with land-hardened people. Russia's Ural Mountains serve as the gateway into Europe and the Black Sea, and a fascinating pit stop at the infamous Ural motorcycle factory in Irbit. Through the green rolling hills and post-Soviet shadows of the Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, they finally arrive in Munich, Germany, having traveled 65 days and 11,000 miles. A dozen GlobeRiders are elated and fulfilled with a new sense of themselves, their accomplishments, and the remarkable world they live in.
