Your school may choose to focus on a specific country, or a specific topic or curriculum area. This presentation can be customized based on your needs!

This visual arts assembly includes Storytelling, interactivity with audience volunteers, and accompanied by an original music score as world bike adventurer and composer George Maurer takes students on a journey across the world, sharing stories of amazing encounters he has had on a bicycle.

It’s part educational, part environmental, part inspirational, and an all live musical performance blended with live video experiences from the viewpoint of a bicycle seat. Via drone, GoPro, and modern film technology, students can spin along with George as he shows, up close views and scenes from Iceland, Patagonia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Newfoundland, and Across the USA.

A 50-minute presentation featuring a variety of hand-picked inspiring, engaging, education-minded stories from the many adventures George has had bike-packing across the world. He’ll begin with a demonstration of the bicycle up close, including what goes on it, how it’s loaded up, and other ways he prepares for adventures.

Then, students will set off with George on several virtual bike rides, utilizing video stories with pauses in the action for live dialogue to emphasize a particular learning moment or teaching lesson.

George may also include his keyboard for live musical accompaniment of the video moments, establishing the similarities between creative moments in bicycle adventuring along with composition.
