Benjamin Myers, 38, of southern California, has been chosen as one of six riders from around the world to join Touratech founder Herbert Schwarz and his wife Ramona on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Madagascar. Touratech started the United People of Adventure project as a way to open up the world to ordinary riders, and to do some good at the same time. The team will travel by motorcycle, visiting orphanages, meeting the locals and navigating challenging terrain. A film crew will accompany them on this journey, recording their adventures.
As the United People of Adventure website states, “Explore the world on a motorcycle. Create unbelievable memories. Feed your curious mind with answers to uncommon questions. Travel the roads less traveled, for they always lead to the most beautiful places. Be in touch with the fascinating people you meet along your way. Let them tell you their story. Don’t have any expectations and trust your gut feelings!”
