CICLO: Two Brothers Retrace Their Cross-Continental Bike Journey

June 24, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

On the day of May 1st, 1956, two brothers — Arturo and Gustavo Martinez — set out on an arduous journey in hopes of crossing multiple continents by bicycle. After achieving this impressive feat fifty-four years later, the two brothers have decided to document their attempt to retrace their iconic journey “in an exploration of memory, the cycle of life, as well as the passage of time.” Documented by the brothers’ own niece, a family story unfolds as a documentary epic.
