mad dash down the Silk Road: Cycling Silk highlights reel
Hard to believe, but the Cycling Silk expedition ended a year ago today, when Mel and I flew home to Canada to begin other adventures–in my case, writing a book about the journey. To commemorate the end of the trip, we put together this random, purely-for-kicks highlights reel which condenses ten months, ten countries, and ten thousand kilometers of adventure...into roughly ten minutes of video footage.
This is a partial and hodgepodge portrayal of the trip, to be sure, and it doesn’t even touch on the wild borderlands dimension of what we were up to on the Silk Road–that will come later! We'll also be releasing a bonafide trailer in a couple of weeks. For now, though, we simply wanted to share the wild joy of riding the open road with you. Thanks many times over to everyone who supported us during this expedition, and happy trails...
