Here it is! The first part of the AWOL project and the infamously-epic Transcontinental Race!
“London to Istanbul within two weeks, overcoming more than 3100km, 30.000m of altitude gain and crossing 14 european borders. Unsupported, following a route of their choice, day and night, rain or shine, crossing the whole european continent: We went AWOL with Recep Yesil and Erik Nohlin on the mighty Transcontinental Race.

Bikes: Specialized AWOL Transcontinental

I love receiving emails from Martin at e r t z u i ° film. Especially when their subject begins with “If we ever have a chance to meet in person… I’d want it to be in Russia. Riding our bikes. In the middle of nowhere.” That’s exactly where Martin spent some time recently with his bike, a Ricoh 500G and an Olympus 35mm. Check out his photos from Kiew to Wolgograd at the e r t z u i ° Flickr.
This is so rad. Not only does it make me miss the snow but it makes me want to travel to Germany even more. Great work, once again from the team at Ertzui.
Here’s the latest from e r t z u i ° film.
