We just got this update this morning from brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle of the MKRide regarding their World Record journey through China…the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records in in stores now and they are in it! We are proud to be a supporter of their epic adventure…their scala rider G4 PowerSets went the World Record distance!
Here’s what Ryan had to say:
I’m writing because I thought many of you might be interested in knowing the that Guinness World Book of Records for 2012 is currently available in book stores globally.
Colin Pyle and Ryan Pyle would like to direct your attention to Page 121 of the 2012 edition, so that you can view our record for the Longest Continuous Motorcycle Journey within a Single Country.
Colin and Ryan are very proud that their journey has been recognized as a Guinness World Record, but that’s not the reason why we wanted to ride motorcycles around China. We planned and executed our journey not only to enjoy riding motorcycles together in the most remote corners of the China, but also because we 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 traveling through dozens, we were able to really dial in and understand what is going on in China, and how it’s 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.
We have a book and television show that are coming out in 2012. Both are currently being produced at the moment.
