World on Wheels offers free DVD

Australian-based motorcycle travel experts World on Wheels (WOW) are offering a free DVD of their trips so you can see just what you are in for!

Here’s the trailer.

The free DVD includes 12 five-minute videos of each of the WOW trips being offered in 2017.

They were edited by former Road Rider editor Mick Matheson who has produced several other videos for Motorbike Writer. He now works with wife Anne Baker in their professional video production company Phantom2 Media.

As a bigger taste of what you get on the DVD, here is the five-minute video of the Tacos and Tequila Tour we did with WOW in 2015.

The tour runs through Mexico, Guatemala and Belize before returning to Mexico. In a short cameo appearance, MBW gives a quick assessment of why we love riding these roads so much!

Most of the video here is shot by Mrs MBW from the pillion perch and it gives you a great idea of the magnificent scenery, food, people and roads.

For your free DVD, simply send an email to Mike and Denise Ferris of WOW.

Fred Hollows rideFred Hollows Foundation World on Wheels ride to Bourke Mike and Denise Ferris free dvd

Their response may be a little slow this week as they are heading to Bourke on Wednesday for their inaugural charity ride to support the Fred Hollows Foundation.

More than 30 riders are expected to join them with the hope of raising up to $50,000 for the Australia Day Weekend Ride to Restore Sight.

The Fred Hollows Foundation raises money for 20-minute sight-restoring operations that cost as little as $25 each.

Riders will visit a Foundation eye care clinic and the final resting place of Fred Hollows who died in 1993 after having restored the sight of an estimated one million people worldwide.

Sponsors have donated various fundraising motivational prizes for riders including a $100 voucher for the new Motorbike Writer online shop.

We wish all riders a safe journey. It’s going to be hot out there, so please read this article for tips on beating dehydration before setting out.
