Do you want to see the world?
Iohan Gueorguiev (Bike Wanderer) did. Iohan was born and raised in Bulgaria and moved to Ontario, Canada when he was 15. He spent the next 10 years there. He said that as soon as he saw the Rocky Mountains everything changed. This documentary follows his bike ride from the shore of the Arctic Ocean (Northwest Territories, Canada) to British Columbia (Canada)and makes compulsive viewing. I hardly ever use the word ‘Awesome’. This time it’s all I can say.

As of OCT, 2015, Iohan has been travelling for a total of eighteen months, five of those were spent working ( two months as a tree planter). He’s covered a distance of 13,500 miles, through Canada and the USA.

He won a contest to be a Blackburn brand ambassador (“Blackburn Ranger”) and is on the last portion of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (GDMBR). He’s made several more videos since this one, links can be found on his website.
