Iron Road Continental bike Tour
“Sure, it’s an adventure and it’s not for everyone. You have to survive some intense conditions. You’re continually being tested physically and mentally. This is serious business” Paulo Martino - creator
Imagine a ride so grueling it would test not only a man’s resolve or mental strength but even the machine he is riding! Truly test it! How far would you go? How many miles could you ride? How many days through blistering heat, rough terrain, freezing cold conditions? Imagine riding cross-continent throughout the world to over 30 countries, day after day, crossing borders from one country to the next for over 90 days straight. That’s what “The Iron Road Cross-Continental Bike Tour” is all about. This ride has been completed once and will now be attempted again. Only this time, we are inviting top international brands along for the journey
Paulo Martino, a tried and true diehard rider is prepared to weather the storm. He and a couple of his closest mates will take on the open road and Mother Nature without a care. Some nights they will find themselves having dinner over an open flame, camping under the stars or sleeping in an abandon shack. Other nights they will find a roadside motel to replenish and get a chance to shower. They will travel throughout Australia, Asia and Europe eating local foods, visiting temples, restaurants, bars and experiencing diverse culture. Your brand is invited to ride along side them on this EPIC adventure.
The Iron Road Bike Tour will start in Perth, Western Australia from the team’s Perth chapter. The tour will end 3 months later when they meet up with their Norwegian mother chapter in Oslo, Norway.
The tour will take 3 months to complete and will be documented for the world to see, share and be a part of. Viewers can follow along through our website, social media channels and YouTube. The team will share their stories along the way with daily posts to social media platforms. Our production team will film daily/weekly/monthly story vignettes all leading to a professionally produced Iron Road Bike episode
