BEYOND SIBERIA – RIDING THE ROAD OF BONES
The 30,000-kilometre motorbike ride from London to Magadan, on the edge of Russia, has been described as one of the most challenging motorbike rides in the world. For four solid months, 16 adventure motorbike riders from around the world push their bikes to the limit across a quarter of the Earth’s surface. Starting in Europe they ride the length of Russia, onto the historical Silk Road, deep into Mongolia, through the Siberian wilderness and an incredibly moving final ride through the infamous Road of Bones. This is a spiritual wasteland where over two million people perished during Stalin’s reign of terror and their bodies were used as road fill. Through blazing deserts, inland seas, snow-covered peaks, black ice, torrential rain, raging rivers and vast empty plains, this is a motorbike adventure like no other. These riders know that every bend in the road could be their last and not everybody will make it to the end. Presented and narrated by Charley Boorman.
