Man Bikes 11,185 Miles Around the World in 365 Days — Lives to Tell His Incredible Story

It’s an age-old question and one people ask themselves often: What is the meaning of life?

Some are driven by a fiery desire to find the answer, while others ponder it once in a blue moon. But regardless of how much weight it holds for any given individual, it is perhaps one of the most universal searches out there.

For one man, merely wondering just wasn’t enough. So he decided to do something about it.

On June 22, 2013, armed with nothing but a deep desire to explore the world, some luggage, a camera, and a bicycle, 23-year-old Felix Starck set out on a journey that would radically transform his life.

He traversed nearly 11,200 miles while visiting a total of 22 countries, all over the course of one year. Now Starck is sharing his unique story and all aspects of his journey — the good and the bad — with the world.

His new documentary, Pedal the World, is the first-hand account of his incredible experience, which not only promises to take you on the journey with him but may just also ignite the fire inside your heart to go on your own wild adventure.
