Montura ambassador Alessandro De Bertolini has stacking up kilometres on his bike with the "Bike the History" project, which combines slow and sustainable travel with the discovery of the territory and its history.
A true trademark for the Trentino cycle traveller, who just a few years ago crossed the United States from south to north, always with the same philosophy, in search of new ways of living the outdoors. At the beginning of July, he set off from Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia, for a journey that will take him this time to Asia for three months.
The place of departure was no coincidence, Alessandro decided in fact to leave from the village of Ger in the Chingeltei district, promoted by Need You Onlus through the ""Ger for Life"" project, aimed at single mothers with disabled children. One of the aims of the trip is to ideally link the two solidarity projects supported by Montura, namely ""Ger for Life"" and ""Rarahil Memoria School"", in Nepal. The other one is to monitor certain characteristics of the air in the territories crossed and thus study the effects of climate change in these remote areas of the planet. This is why the expedition on this occasion sees important collaborations from a scientific point of view, such as with the National Research Council - CNR and the Trento Science Museum - MUSE. CNR researchers have specially developed an instrument for this expedition to collect this data. After Mongolia, Alessandro will travel through China to Nepal. From this experience, as in the United States, a reportage will be realised with the production of a documentary and a travel diary.
All proceeds from these activities will go to the international solidarity projects involved. The narrative will focus on the history of the peoples of the steppes and the first explorers who discovered the Far East. In the background the relationship between the cultural and nature landscape.
