Weekend Watch: Cycling Home From Siberia

Some days in the life of a Siberian cyclist... a dazzling rush through some random encounters from Rob Lilwall on Vimeo.

I was lent his book last summer, and it is a fantastic read. Last week I came across this vimeo piece from Rob Lilwall. It is a rough cut trailer of his video footage mostly taken between Australia and Afghanistan.

On the 30,000 mile, 3 year journey, he had no back up and no sponsorship. To get this footage he just balanced the camera on a rock and rode past it, or sometimes asked somebody he met (and trusted!) to film him riding along.

See www.cyclinghomefromsiberia.com for more info on the trip.


  1. I just got this book too. It is next on my reading list! Cheers.

  2. I still can't believe he started a bike tour in Siberia... in the middle of winter... with little or no experience at such things. I reviewed the book here... http://www.bikingbis.com/blog/_archives/2011/4/21/4800005.html

  3. Thank you for another informative web site. Where else may just I get that type of info written in such a perfect means? I've a undertaking that I am just now running on, and I've been at the glance out for such info.
