ON A FOLDING BIKE
FROM BRAZIL TO CANADA
PEOPLE AND STORIES
LEADING MY WAY
I am cycling on my folding bike from Brazil to Canada by searching for people with stories. Their stories and the adventure set my path. I am following them on my way.
My journey starts in the wonderful but dangerous city of Rio de Janeiro.
On my way to Canada I go through the most intensive time in my life by experiencing the danger, sorrow, joy and luck. 9 months, 11 countries und an unforgettable adventure...

Cem Oezulus, born in 1983, the son of a Turkish immigrant family, lives in Ventura, California. After studying electrical engineering in 2005, he began working as an engineer in the automotive industry. In early 2017, he decided to give up his secure job and pursue his passion: adventure travel.
He chose a journey that combined the most important things in his life: humanity and nature. So he packed his folding bike and set off without any equipment, only with a mission: solely following people and their stories without any guides or tourist attractions. These would shape his path. He was prepared to go alternative routes. His journey started in the vibrant, but also dangerous city of Rio de Janeiro. His route: open. His destination: Canada.
Cem likes to escape daily routines, try new things and enjoys exploring undiscovered paths. He is keen to surround himself with people who are dissimilar to him. This enables him to realize unknown sides in himself. He can not imagine a life without sport or his folding bike. Quality social contacts and relationships are the key to happiness for him. In future he wants to devote his time to technical projects that solve social problems and help people.
