A Journey By Bicycle Around The Great Lakes
On May 1, 2012 two adventurers hit the saddle and began their documented journey around the Great Lakes of North America. Together they spent 97 days bicycling 5,521 miles on a journey that them through 2 countries, 8 states, and over 20 major cities. As we undertook this epic journey we filmed with High Definition cameras to document our experiences.
This expedition was born from our discovery of bicycle touring and our love for the Great Lakes region. It was our wish to put all of our efforts into getting a first hand and intimate look into discovering the importance of this amazing region.
With our documented experiences we hope to create an educational adventure film capturing the importance of the Great Lakes in order to create a bond with those living near and beyond the scope of the Great Lakes, a region holding 1/5 of the world's fresh surface water. This feature documentary will be the first to capture the Great Lakes region by bicycle, showing our interactions with the Great Lakes, its communities, and the incredible landscape that surrounds them.
