For the last 30 years, Edelweiss Bike Travel has operated more than 1,600 tours all over the world. Almost 30,000 people enjoyed the benefits of riding with the worldwide number 1 in guided motorcycle tours. To celebrate this grand success Edelweiss organized the biggest guided motorcycle tour ever – a tour once around the world!

After more than a year of preparation, the DISCOVER OUR EARTH motorcycle expedition started on November 21 in Mieming, home of Edelweiss Bike Travel since 1980. Motorcycle enthusiasts from the US, Canada, Brazil, Great Britain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria signed up to be part of this unique experience, which lasts 8 months and 40,000 miles of riding. “I am excited and very happy that we finally start!” says Werner Wachter minutes before departure.

Starting in Mieming, Austria, the group rides down to Southern Spain, then Morocco and further until they reach the Western Sahara. Back in Malaga the group flies to Buenos Aires, Argentina. From there they ride down to Ushuaia and back up to Bogota, Columbia. After crossing the Panama Canal they cross all of Latin America und ride up to Los Angeles, USA. After the flight across the Pacific Ocean the group starts the Australian section in Sydney from where they ride across the Red Rock Country before they reach Perth. The last section starts in Bangkok, Thailand and the route covers some of the most exciting countries in Asia before they finally return to Mieming, Austria on July 27, 2011. Then it is time to celebrate!
