Overlanders are not professional athletes. Instead, they are proof that even regular people can do amazing things. With the right mindset, motivation, and determination, nothing is impossible.

Inspired by bikepacking tours like the Trans Am Bike Race, the Tour Divide, and similar races, the Indian Pacific Wheel Race is a solo, single-stage and unsupported 5,500km road cycling ocean to ocean race across Australia. The rules are simple and largely self-policed.

According to tradition, the race starts at 6:22am in Fremantle, Western Australia on the third Saturdary of March. It then finishes at the Sydney Opera House whenever you get there. The clock does not stop, and there is no prize money. The only thing at stake is your honor.

In 2017, Mike Hall was killed by a motorist while riding the race, and because of that, the race is stopped until an ongoing coronial inquest is finished. Some cyclists still decide to run the amazing course through the year.

The two categories for the race are solo and relay, with relay category including four riders, each riding solo and unsupported for the chosen section of the course. This documentary show the journey of one Overlander who finished the race, and all the preparations that go along the way.
