In 2010 Sam (Bike Odyssey Founder), Ben and Danny Wood made 'On Hannibal's Trail' for the BBC. It is a cycling history travelogue riding on the trail of Hannibal, the warrior who marched from Spain to Rome at the head of an invading army. It was picked up by National Geographic and Viasat and ended up being shown in over 70 countries worldwide! The following year we were asked to ride 'On Napoleon's Trail' from Paris to Moscow but....then came children! Since then the brothers have had 7 children between them, so priorities changed - for the good of course!
However, Sam now runs Bike Odyssey and their flagship tour is Hannibal - Barcelona to Rome. So come ride this amazing tour with us.
And if you want to see more (you may not!), now that the children are growing up (and creativity is seeping back to fill the brain instead of sleeplessness fog!) new projects are looming just over the horizon. The exceptional landscape of Patagonia awaits via Bike tour CHE and new partners are lining up to be part of this project (They don't know what they are getting themselves into!) Stay tuned to watch how the making of Che tour in South America unfolds over the coming months. In the meantime, see the snippet below, along with the reaction from the British Press to see why we were so keen to create to the tour of the same name!. Come and join us on Hannibal!
Please get in touch if you are interested in watching the whole documentary. We can refer you to the BBC who will be happy to provide the full 6 episode series - firstname.lastname@example.org
Bike Odyssey has a new documentary in mind.......Project Patagonia. In this coming October we will be in South America, cycling, photographing, exploring and filming. No doubt it will finalise the route for our most adventurous epic adventure yet, but will it also provide a trailer for another documentary? We will keep you updated.......
