The Antipodes Expedition:
From Ushuaia to Inuvik by Bicycle

Antipodes meaning opposing poles, the expedition will be from one pole to the other (in practice). More amazingly, amusingly, astoundingly will be the fact that it is a bicycle journey.

Starting at the very tip of South America and covering twenty-three thousand (23 000!) km of ardurous trails, barren plains, covering jungle and peak, we will share our experiences on this website as we head towards the far reaches of North America.

Meet the people, meet the riders. Watch our hijinks as we touch cultures and come to terms with who we are and how we fit. Is the Antipodes Expedition just a "Bicycle Built for Two Llamas?" stay tuned and find out!

Long Road North is in Spain

In October 2010 the documentary film Long Road North which chronicles the journey of the Antipodes expedition was entered in the Cycle Touring Film Festival in Parafugell, Spain (near Barcelona).
We were pleasantly suprised when a few weeks later we learned that Long Road North had won both the 'Premio a la Mejor Aventura' and 'Premio del público'.
En palabras del jurado (in the words of the jury) "la ruta que siguen es impresionante a nivel paisagístico, pero cabe decir que son sus protagonistas quienes nos hacen vivir intensamente y disfrutar del viaje, a través de sus palabras, en un tono de conversación privada.

With this new wind in our sails we have been invited to the Burgos world cycling film festival El Mundo en Bicicleta The screening is March 4th 2011.

To take advantage of this opportunity we are now also booked to screen at the famous mountaineering book store in Madrid Librería Desnivel
On March 2nd 2011 Plaza Matute 6, 28012 Madrid

Finally we will be screening on March 5th at the mountain climbing town of Manzanares El Real 60km North of Madrid. for the Bicimundo film series http://bicimundo.wordpress.com/

location: el Salón de Actos del I.E.S. Sierra de Guadarrama de Soto del Real

Very exciting to be visiting Spain and sharing our film with a new audience.
I am madly putting the finishing touches on our spanish subtitles.

Long Road North DVD available

After a wonderful run of film Festivals across North America and Europe.
Long Road North is now available on DVD.

Check out the film's trailer at the film's website.
http://www.longroadnorth.com/

For all of you who have followed the expedition but have not had the chance to see the film in the theatre, this is your chance to see it now.
The post production of the film ended up taking 2 years and at time to be just as great a challenge as cycling across 18 countries.

This is more than just a travelog of the journey. It is reflection on the change the my life went through as I went through this journey, in my relationships, my motivations and my outlook on the world.

I hope you will follow this link and support independent film making by buying a DVD.
