Motorcycle expedition “2 Wheels 2 Continents”

Final chapter of the 2 Wheels expedition trilogy- “2 Wheels 2 Continents”, will start on February, 2018. Happening from February to November, it is going to lead from Melbourne, Australia back to Riga, with a finish no later than November 18th, to honour the month of Latvian independence. That way motorcyclists want to give a symbolic gift for Latvia’s 100th birthday.

The core of expedition consists of Mārtiņš Sils, who is a member of previous 2 Wheels expeditions, and two more experienced motorcyclists Juris Pūce and Ģirts Vilnis. There is a chance for other motorcycle enthusiasts, who think they can bring a positive vibe to the expedition, to join it by becoming a part of the team.

This time will be no different than before –during the expedition motorcyclists will work as 2 Wheels Tutors. After its foundation two years ago (with the start of “2 Wheels 2 Capes” expedition), this non – formal education initiative has managed to grow and attract more and more attention and wish to participate from Latvian students. Chance to lead expeditions remotely has been used by many students from all around the country. The student quiz competition regarding “2 Wheels 2 Continents” expedition will be announced on September 1st, 2017.

At the time of the expedition, those interested, will be able to read a blog from motorcyclists, as well as regular articles in news portal Delfi.lv section “Tourism Guide” and posts in social networks about everyday happenings and adventures. Motorcyclists themselves are going to make a video material during the whole expedition, that later on will be turned into a 10 – episode documentary. Whereas the photo material has a potential to later become an exhibition, as it has already happened with the best photos from “2 Wheels 2 Capes” expedition. This exhibition can still be seen in different cities in Latvia. It has also been confirmed that 2 Wheels Tutors will continue the cooperation with TV show “Smart and the smartest” (“Gudrs vēl gudrāks”)- Tutors will create video questions from the expedition for contestants.
