Viking Biking TV

Introducing you to an amazing initiative by two young men who are giving LIFE A GO!

The Viking Biking Project.

The guys started this adventure after taking on an incredible Inspired Adventure which I love to go on, and learnt more about Amnesty International and the amazing country of Cambodia. This led them on to their next epic adventure:

The Viking Biking adventure isn’t just about having fun and showing the beautiful people and countryside of Cambodia, it’s about two mates learning who they are and finding out what they’re capable of. This is a story of friendship, adversity, beauty and inspiration that will not only entertain, but inspire people to get out there and make a difference themselves, to discover the world, to challenge their ideals and to make the most of this beautiful life we are given.

A message from the lovely Dave Zwolenski who is running this great initiative:

“Without your support we really cannot make this dream happen, and so we ask from the bottom of our hearts for your support. Small amounts are great. $10, $20, whatever you can spare… but if you can go a bit higher into the $50’s and $100’s, then that’s even more amazing.

www.pozible.com/vikingbikingTV – that is our site

If you really can’t give (and we totally get it) then please tell your friends about us. Tweet about us. Facebook about us. Blog about us. Whatever you can to spread the word about two best friends riding their bikes around the world, dressed as Vikings, because they want to experience life to the fullest and to turn those experiences into entertainment for you to watch and hopefully laugh at.”

OUR AIM

Our aim is that once this pilot has been made, we present it to as many networks and production companies as we can, and, as it will be the most entertaining and wild pilot anyone has ever seen, a network would be crazy to say no to turning it into a full series. Our overall goal is for us to ride six (maybe more) countries around the world dressed in our Viking gear, making new friends and exploring parts of the world many dare fear, filming the entire trip, show you aspects of the world you never knew existed.

This is our dream guys! We want to open people’s eyes to the world, inspire you, make you laugh, entertain you and hopefully add to the current Australian television landscape by producing home-grown, good quality TV that people can relate to. We appreciate your support and promise to deliver a TV Pilot that will make you laugh, cry (honestly there is one scene that you will need a box of tissues for) and above all, entertain.

We sincerely Thank You from the bottom of our hearts! (SERIOUSLY, THANK YOU THANK YOU!!)

Lots of love and respect from Viking Dave and Viking Redd (and Viking Camera-Man Dan).

So get behind these guys and help them make a difference!
