Bicycling through History, A New Series on DVD

The best game we can offer is trying to figure out where we should go next. Some have suggested Alaska. While we admit that there is plenty of history in Alaska, we know that bicycling could be rather difficult there. For a state of such massive proportions, they have relatively few roads. Mountain biking is an option, but we will leave that to the locals (and the bears).

Some have suggested Europe. (Yes, we would love to go.) Others have suggested the ancient Mayan ruins of Central and South America. (That is on our list.) Still others have suggested the Far East.

We nearly signed up for a bicycle tour of Viet Nam with Velo Asia.com. This, we believe, has tremendous potential. We could show the contrast between ancient cultures and modern life while at the same time reliving difficult memories for the American people. Bicycles are quite common in Viet Nam, so that would not pose any problem at all. The main problem for us is the cost. Estimates are well over $10,000 for the crew to participate in the tour and to bring back good movie footage.

This game is essentially a real world challenge.

Where do we find the money to take these trips ?

We have a page devoted to sponsors. That appears to be the most practical way for us to go to these exotic locations and bring back the footage for publishing on DVD. If we continue with our current schedule for bicycle trips, we will probably remain in the United States for the next few years.

There is nothing wrong with that. We like the ease of travel, the conveniences, the availability of good accommodations and quality medical support if we need it. Other countries pose certain risks. There is the potential for danger, disease, political unrest, typhoons, volcanoes and No Cellphone Coverage ! We might as well stay home and keep warm in our little beds.

Or, play the real game of life.

We prefer to go out and take a few calculated risks. This represents the American way. It typifies the early settlers across the country that were seeking a better life, and that we try to illustrate in the DVD series. We recognize that danger exists. We plan our courses carefully. We prepare for our adventures and we accept the challenges.

Play along and accept the challenges of life.

You might learn something and then can start planning your course by watching our DVDs,

Or, if you prefer Internet-based games with eye-hand coordination, here is a BMX game.
