Monday, December 3, 2012. HONG KONG — G219 Productions Limited announces that the new adventure travel book by adventures and television presenters Colin Pyle and Ryan Pyle is entitled The MIDDLE KINGDOM RIDE. The book will be published worldwide in the English language on Thursday, December 6th 2012.

When Canadian brothers Colin and Ryan Pyle set out from Shanghai on a motorcycle journey that had never previously been attempted, they thought they had some idea of what lay ahead of them. It was a misconception that had become evident by the end of Day 1. But, despite the many challenges they faced, 65 days and 18,000 km later they’d succeeded in circumnavigating China.

In an expedition of extremes, Colin and Ryan visited the third lowest point on Earth and slept at Everest Base Camp beside its highest mountain. They traveled off-road through deep desert sands in suffocating heat, traversed mountain passes in freezing temperatures that turned the moisture in their clothes to ice, and rode in torrential rain through mudslides beside rapidly rising flood waters.

At the end of their remarkable journey, the brothers had strengthened the bond between them, gained a Guinness World Record, tested their endurance to its limits, and shared an adventure that most of us will only ever dream of having.
In their book The Middle Kingdom Ride, Colin and Ryan take us with them as they travel through the diverse and extraordinary landscapes of China, from its border with North Korea, to the ancient Muslim city of Kashgar, across the vast empty spaces of the Mongolian grasslands, over the mountains and into the monasteries of Tibet.

Hey guys - I just listened to your podcast interview from 2012 with Tom Lowdermilk on "Side Stand Up". I was so interested I flicked over to Amazon and bought your DVD. I then found an episode on YouTube and enjoyed it immensely.

Thanks for bringing this amazing landscape to us.

I thought you would like to know! I hope your DVD and book sales fund several more adventures.

PS - it is truly a drag that "Side Stand Up" is no more. We need more podcasts like that. I'm still working backwards through their inventory from iTunes.
