“Cape to Cape” Bikepacking from North Cape, Norway, to Cape Town, South Africa

Back in 2019, German ultra-endurance athlete Jonas Deichmann and his riding partner, Philipp Hympendahl, set off from North Cape, Norway, on a self-supported 18,000-kilometer ride to Cape Town, South Africa.

Their goal was the beat the existing speed record of 102 days, which they did by more than a month, finishing in an incredible 72 days and traveling an average of 250 kilometers per day.

Cape to Cape is an hour-long documentary that covers the entire journey across 14 countries on two continents. It offers insights into the physical and personal challenges both riders faced along the way, from sickness, to extreme temperatures, to personal tensions, and more.
