We have been working on this trip for the past two years, slowly gathering information from cyclists, backpackers, friends, family, libraries and more web sites than we care to think about!

We were hoping to spend several months training for the ride, but have been so busy sorting out documentary / sponsorship / equipment / maps / weather / camera gear / film stock that we ran out of time. However, most of the global cyclists we met told us that you get fit as you ride. Hopefully by the time we get to the mountains we should be prepared....
