Ep.8 - THE ROAD TO SYDNEY
In 2013 Zac Newham embarked on a 25,000 mile solo cycle ride from his home in England to Sydney, Australia on his budget childhood bicycle.
His film, The Road to Sydney, portrays a truthful (albeit whirlwind!) snapshot of this epic year and a half long journey on two wheels and palpably puts us all in the saddle as he pedals his way east.
Funny, simple, unpretentious and full of good cheer.
In this episode of ExPODition, David talks with Zac Newham about his bicycle ride half way round the world.
The conversation was recorded remotely on January 11th, 2021.

EP.5 - WHEN THE ROAD ENDS
In 2010 Dylan dreamt of travelling the world on a motorcycle. After setting off from Switzerland in 2010 and journeying 200,000km, the road from Panama to Colombia came to an end, swallowed up by an impenetrable jungle.
The solution? Dylan built a raft powered by his motorcycle engine in the hope of reaching Colombia's road network 700km away. He had to brave strong ocean currents and storms during his journey from Central to South America on the Pacific.
In this episode of ExPODition, David talks with Dylan Wickrama about what it's like to live on a motorcycle powered raft out in the Pacific for 49 days.

EP.3 - SEA GYPSIES
The vessel is Infinity, a 120ft hand-built sailing ketch that plies the Pacific Ocean on a never ending voyage of nomadic exploration. In early Feb 2014, during the iciest year on record in the Southern Ocean, Infinity and her crew of 16 left New Zealand on an 8,000 mile pacific crossing to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica.
