THE MIDDLE KINGDOM RIDE – COLIN AND RYAN PYLE
The Guinness Book of World Records for 2012 is currently available in book stores globally. Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle would like to direct your attention to page 121 of the 2012 edition, so that you can view their record for the longest continuous motorcycle journey within a single country. Colin and Ryan completed their “Middle Kingdom Ride” around China on Touratech equipped BMW F 800 GS motorbikes.Colin and Ryan are very proud that their journey has been recognized as a Guinness World Record, but that’s not the reason why they wanted to ride motorcycles around China. They planned and executed their journey not only to enjoy riding motorcycles together in the most remote corners of China, but also because they wanted to have a deeper understanding of the diverse landscapes, cultures and minorities that exist in China.“By focusing only on one country, and not travelling through dozens, we were able to really dial in and understand what is going on in China, and how its rapid transformation is affecting the lives of people throughout their country. We hope our journey, and the reasons behind our journey, will raise interest among not only adventure motorcycle riders but also travellers and anyone who might be interested in learning more about what China has to offer”, Ryan says.
Colin and Ryan Pyle have a book and television show that are coming out in 2012. Both are currently being produced at the moment.
