Pedal The World is a 2015 feature-length documentary that follows Felix Starck, a young German who, fuelled by a desire to add some meaning to his life and discover the world, cycled 18,000 km through 22 countries in 365 days. Setting out from his home in Germany, Felix pedals across Europe to Turkey, before getting on a plane and heading to South East Asia, New Zealand, the United States and, eventually, back to Germany. Although the narration is in English, Starck speaks directly to the camera in his native tongue.


One of my favourite aspects of the documentary is the fact that Starck has no previous experience embarking on such a journey, simply he wanted to undertake a challenge and record what he saw along the way. It is an inspiring trip for those with a desire to break away from the monotony of day-to-day life and do something that will set them outside their comfort zone, particularly due to the fact that Starck himself is not a professional cyclist or traveller.


Another characteristic of the film that I found especially engaging was the personal aspect of it. Shot and edited by Starck, he often turns the camera on himself to provide his thoughts and feelings for the viewer. This differs from other travel documentaries, which often tell more about the destination than the person themselves.


Nevertheless, one criticism that I would level at Pedal The World would be the lack of overall meaning to the film. While it is certainly a journey of self-discovery, it is missing the lasting message or theme that other similar films have, while at the same time nothing of substantial significance ever really takes place. That being said, it is an interesting take on travelling the world and is well worth the 90-minutes.

  • Amateur filmmaker and cyclist with no previous experience of cycling such a large distance
  • Personal experience that documents his struggles and feelings along the way
  • Lacks the message that other similar films contain

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥;🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to search for each item laboriously. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.
