"Cycling the Pacific Ring of Fire part 3...Full Circle" is a multimedia presentation documenting the adventures of Canadian cyclists Janick Lemieux and Pierre Bouchard on their 24,000 kilometer "volcano-hopping" mountain bike trek from Jakarta to Vancouver. During the 27 months they spent on the saddle the pair explored the volcanoes and cultures of Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Russia's Kurils and Kamchatka, Alaska, Western Canada, and Hawaii.
This presentation will include over a thousand stunning images, several original video excerpts, and animated maps and graphics portraying their incredible journey. Janick and Pierre will be on-hand narrating it all with witty and insightful commentary and observations, intertwined with melodies and rhythms of Montreal composer Martin Tremblay.
Janick Lemieux and Pierre Bouchard have been patrolling the world on their burdened bikes, seeking adventures and searching for the people and landscapes of our planet, since 1990. Besides seeing their work published in magazines around the world, they are long-time regular contributors to Canada's Pedal, Vélo Mag, and Géo Plein Air. It's in May 1999, after having pedaled more than 100,000 kilometers in some 40 countries, that they set off for the Pacific Ring of Fire's volcanoes and dwellers
