Cycling the Highest Road in the World | 7:19
David Fletcher + Jason Stirling, Brunswick East, Victoria, Australia
When you begin riding bikes you are constantly bombarded with new challenges – your first mountain, your first puncture or even the first time you get lost. Like anything though, after a certain period of time these challenges become less stimulating. You can always push yourself harder or ride further but nothing will ever compare to that feeling when you first reached the summit of that illusive mountain. This adventure was about chasing that feeling. “We wanted to do something so far out of our comfort zone that there was a possibility that we wouldn’t even make it.” Follow along as these adventurers ride from Manali to Khardung La – a Himalayan road made famous by it’s altitude and precarious nature.
Motherfucking Bike | 2:35
John Benson + Ward Evans, San Francisco, California, USA
An unapologetic celebration of the modern urban commuter, MFB has become an anthem for riders worldwide.
