In 2018, Sportful partnered with Justin Balog and Remi McManus as they attempted to establish the first north to south Trans-Icelandic bike route, beginning at the Arctic Circle and finishing at Iceland’s southernmost point, the black sands of Vik.
Even though planning a route on the other side of the world was no easy undertaking, Justin and Remi often explore roads less traveled and are always packing their spirit of adventure. What lies beyond the next bend in the road? That is what they seek to find out as they tell stories that connect people and their lands through shared understanding and human powered exploration.
The result of this project is an incredible film experience titled "Shared Territory - Iceland." We hope you enjoy the trailer's glimpse of Iceland's extraordinary landscape and of the adventure ahead for the riders. Be sure to check out our upcoming posts as we break down the gear, lodging, nutrition, and route planning that made this trip possible.
After months in the making, we’re super excited to offer the full feature length film of @SharedTerritory and their north to south Trans-Icelandic bike journey!
