This multimedia presentation accounts for the discoveries made and adventures endured during the third and final leg of this ambitious and rather unusual circumnavigation, a 24,000 kilometre and 27-month cycling odyssey in its own right stretching from Indonesia to Canada via volcanic isles and peninsulas of Asia, Far East Russia and Alaska, remote and magical spots of Western Canada, and the Pacific Ring of Fire's very centre, bull's eye...Hawaii! Authors of the expedition and the full HD multimedia documentary, we perform the live narration while gripping images unfold on the screen with the support of an original score composed by Montréal-based recording artist Martin Tremblay, sound samples taken in the field, animated maps, and graphics. The full-length presentation lasts about 2 ½ hours and include a 15-minute intermission. The privileged approach, as for all other media components of our project, is to use the trek, adventure as a pretext to “spread the word” about places we go, show how local people live and depict their physical environment; use expedition anecdotes to tie down data harvested on local culture and nature, how these two interact, influence each other. With all this in mind, we created an expedition account that is highly educative, inspirational and entertaining…the anecdotes collected during the 27-month and 24,000 kilometre mega-mountain bike trek amidst this eclectic and exotic collection of destinations sure compose a vertiginous roller coaster of emotions!
