I knew nothing of these two until I came across their video on Vimeo. If you haven’t seen it I very much recommend it. The two of them completed a 10,000km trip on their bikes while investigating the environmental and biological impact of the political borders they crossed on the trip. There is nothing heavy on the video, however, but it is infused with a great sense of humour and a real warmth for the people they met along the way. I rate it was one of the best of its kind.
