Why we are doing this

Tajik Bike Adventure is an inspiring journey about really tough riders, which traverses over 600 km along the Batang Valley in the Pamir Mountains. The film weaves the story of 6 characters’ experiences with immense mountain beauty and small-town rural culture as they attempt to pedal from Sary Tash, Kirgisistan to the small, dusty town Khorog at the Tajik border.

Over the course of 8 days they’ll attempt to climb up to an altitude of 4.300 meters over the Pamir Mountains. They’ll experience mental breakdowns, treacherous snow, bodily pain, and total fatigue. Above all, they’ll race with no support – at times in total isolation. The tests of endurance and the satisfactory moments throughout prompt us to reflect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest. It‘s all about the adventure they are willing to suffer and go through because they actually do it, not just think about it.





Our heroes are real mountain men - organic, spontaneous and authentic.

  • Borris Förster

    Borris Förster, München

    As a serial Entrepreneur, business consultant and part time adven- turist Borris has never chosen the easy and cushy route. In order to see and experience the world during his travels as close and authentic as possible Borris chose to not endanger his live with un- nnecessary, boring and predictable vacation packages. He saw the potential of completely unsuitable vehicles for the intended terrain as the ideal means to experience the world as pure as it comes.

  • Johannes Keim

    Johannes Keim, München

    A business consultant by day, an 80 year old trapped in a young man’s body by night this guy barely leaves his comfort zone of organic food, pay-tv and online rants. For Johannes, football is the only sport considered worth competing in and the only acceptable outcome is a Bayern Munich victory. Culturally literate (loves French wine and Spanish tapas!) he is looking to redeem some Hilton Honors points for relaxing spa sessions during his trip.
