Rally Around the World is a solo, around-the-world motorcycle ride to support the Rally Foundation’s mission of empowering volunteers to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research.
In 2002, as a testicular cancer survivor, and in celebration of his 10thanniversary of being cancer-free, Brad Thompson made a solo bicycle trek from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL covering 3000 miles in 35 days raising funds for cancer research.
Rally Around the World will mark his upcoming 20th anniversary, reaching far beyond the personal challenge he will face on an around-the world motorcycle ride.
ROUTE - departs Nashville, TN on July 28, then ride to Anchorage, Alaska. From Anchorage air-freight motorcycle and gear to Seoul, South Korea, then take a ferry up to Vladivostok, Russia. From there, the plan is to follow the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia, into Latvia & Lithuania, then Poland, Germany, Belgium and France. Will ferry across the English Channel and fly from London to Montreal, Quebec. From there, the route will run south and return to Nashville on September 14 and just in time to celebrate National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Rally Foundation’s NASH BASH on September 29th as part of a homecoming. The entire trip will be about 14,000 road miles and a complete circumnavigation of the world of 25,000 miles.
NOTE: Brad is personally funding this around-the-world motorcycle ride. Therefore, you can be assured every dollar you donate will go directly to Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. For every dollar Rally receives, 93 cents goes to support its mission, according to independently audited financials

Follow us as we pre-purchase two 1980s bikes - sight unseen from Craigs list, and we ride them West to East learning how to build sustainable homes for less than $1000.
Both our bikes have been pre-purchased, site unseen. Although this is purely to save on time, it is also half the fun really. We have done this before through Craigslist and through Ebay and so far, touch wood and cross fingers and toes, we have not had any problems.
Bikes, by their very nature impose less of an impact on the environment. They use less fuel and in turn produce less emissions. They also represent freedom, a significant message of the documentary we are shooting.
But if we are honest, we just love riding motorbikes and believe it to be the most appropriate (and most exhilarating) vehicle for a road trip. Jon once likened biking through Death Valley to riding through the fiery breath of a dragon. Now for many, that might not seem like an experience to replicate – but travelling by motorbike lets you feel and connectwith the environment as you are passing through. The purpose of a car is to insulate you from that environment but bikes allow you to be connected with your natural surroundings and that is of absolute importance. We want to experience the land we are passing through.
After nearly two decades of road trips it is about time we made a film about one of them and that is really the purpose of this project. So, calling all bike loving, road tripping, eco conscious individuals come along for the ride and live vicariously through this interactive road trip adventure. We promise that there will be something in this for all of you.
