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 they 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.
See the snippet below, along with the reaction from the British Press to see why we were so keen to create a tour of the same name! Come and join us on Hannibal!
