World Bike Ride by Temet Nosce

Great Venture
Great Venture

We are two friends with a dream: to transform our lives in a journey, a long journey. We started off on our motorbikes to explore the 5 continents: America, Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania. We face any kind of challenge, all kinds of routes and roads. From sacrifice comes strength, from fear courage, from mistakes… experience! What we are living is an unstoppable adventure in the depths of ourselves. What we want to do is inspire others to keep overcoming their limits. We will do it in 45 months, travelling over 200,000kms around the world. Don’t miss any stage of our great adventure!

“Temet nosce” is the Latin version of the Greek saying written in Apollo’s temple in Delphi, and it means “Know yourself”. The adventurous motorbike travellers Alexandre Dupont and Thiago Costa made it their own, convinced that only in the depths of man can truth be found. So their motorbike trip round the world becomes a journey in search of themselves. To know their limits, put their characters to test, challenge their endurance.
