In 2012 German couple Franzi & Jona quit their jobs and went for a global hiking tour starting in New Zealand and crossing to India and Nepal. As amazing as it must have been, the couple grew tired of walking, so they organised some bikes and continued on two wheels through Iran and Mongolia. After working in Canada for a year to replenish their funds, they began to zig-zag from Alaska to Patagonia; The Great Divide. "After completing The Great Divide they realised the bikes they were using couldn't withstand the conditions they were encountering, and that’s how we came on board" said Bombtrack Bikes, "so we met up with Franzi & Jona in the Sierra Nevada in September last year and provided them 2 of our Beyond+ bikes". After getting them loaded up Franzi & Jona headed south, to take on the famous “Baja Divide”; a 2,735km long off-road bikepacking route down the length of the Baja Californian peninsula leading from San Diego (USA) to La Paz (Mexico). "Tales on Tyres" is their story. Now, we are treated to a video-documentary of their trip, below, and we couldn't help but share it. Fancy an adventure?
