“Cycling for Papua” – Istanbul New Delhi by Bicycle

This is the third and probably most exciting leg of our journey from Berlin to New Delhi by bicycle. This episode takes you through Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and parts of West India (Punjab). What had happened so far: We had a broken frame in Sinop, a town on the Black Sea coast approx. 800km far from Istanbul. We had to hitchhike/take a bus back to Istanbul to wait for a new frame to arrive (three weeks), again take a bus back to Sinop and reassemble the bike.
Actually we had intended to cycle all the way to West Papua, Indonesia, to bring awareness to deforestation. Watch the other films and read more on “Saving Papua”.
