In 2012 the German couple Franzi and Jona (Tales On Tyres) quit their jobs and went for a global hiking tour starting in New Zealand before crossing to India and Nepal. Soon they got tired of walking, organised some bikes and continued on two wheels through Iran and Mongolia. After working in Canada for a year to replenish their funds, they started their current trip zig-zagging from Alaska to Patagonia. They completed “The Great Divide” (USA) and realised the bikes they were using couldn’t withstand the conditions they were encountering – and that’s how we came on board. We met up with Franzi and Jona in the Sierra Nevada in September last year and provided them 2 of our Beyond+ bikes. After getting them loaded up Franzi and Jona headed south, to take on the famous “Baja Divide” – an offroad bikepacking route down the length of the Baja Californian peninsula leading from San Diego (USA) to La Paz (Mexico). The full documentary produced by OSM films will premier at the Berliner Fahrradschau ( on March, 3rd to 5th, see the pgraphic for the exact screening times. If you attend the Berlin bike convention feel free to spread the word & invite your friends. For those that are into beautiful photography: in addition to the screening an exhibition of photographer Franzi (and one half of Tales On Tyres) will take place on the spot.
