Who once did not conquer the globe!

The first round-the-world voyage in the history of mankind, which proved the existence of a single world ocean and the spherical shape of the Earth, was made in 1519-1522 by ships under the command of the great Portuguese Navigator Fernand Magellan.

In 1895, from the port of Boston on the Atlantic coast of North America sailed yacht “Spray”. On Board 11-meter sailboat was only one person – 51-year-old canadian sailor and captain Joshua Slokam. After 3 years, 2 months and 2 days, sailing 74 thousand kilometers, he will return to Boston – and will be the first who dared to go around the globe alone.

In August 1929, Graf Zeppelin (LZ-127), which is operated by Hugo Eckener, performed the world’s first round-the-world flight. Starting from the town of Lakehurst near new York, LZ-127 for 20 days overcame more than 34 thousand kilometers, making only three intermediate landing – in Friedrichshafen, Tokyo and Los Angeles.

April 12, 1961 27-year-old Soviet air force pilot Yuri Gagarin made the first space flight in the world, for 108 minutes making one round around the Earth on the ship “Vostok”.

In 1966, a detachment of Soviet nuclear submarines under the command of rear Admiral Sorokin made the first round-the-world voyage without ascent to the surface.

22 апреля 1969 года сэр Робин Нокс-Джонстон на 10-метровом паруснике «Сухаили» после 312 дней пути завершил первое одиночное кругосветное плавание без захода в какой-либо порт и обращения к кому-либо за помощью или припасами.

In 2002, American millionaire Steve Fossett became the first person in the world to travel around the world in a balloon alone. Flight daredevil lasted 13 days.

On 4 March 2005, he successfully completed the first ever round-the-world nonstop flight without refueling. On the aircraft, “Globalflyer-311” an unusual design, resembling a trimaran, Fossett in 67 hours has overcome 37 thousand kilometers.

Currently, Dmitry Petrukhin, President of Kazakhstan bike club, rides on his BMW roads of the Asian continent on the route China-Laos-Vietnam-Myanmar-Thailand-Malaysia – Indonesia – Australia – New Zealand – Australia – Japan – Korea – Russia (Vladivostok) – Mongolia-Russia to finish in Almaty 60 days after the start and thus complete the final 4th part of his world tour. Sponsorship support was also provided by Kazkommertsbank.

And during his first three motorcycle races Dmitry consistently conquered Europe, Africa and America.

At first its route lay on roads of 16 European countries – Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican, Austria, Poland and Belarus.

The total mileage was more than 18 000 km!

Then the brave biker conquered the Black continent, and part of the route was on the track of the famous race Paris–Dakar! Having passed 7 countries (Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Algeria and Tunisia), Petrukhin returned to Almaty through Greece, Turkey and Slovenia, having rolled, in total, 11 000 km.At last, the third part of Dmitry Petrukhin’s “round – the – world” set as the purpose conquest of South and North America and lay down on a route Brazil – Venezuela – Guyana – Cuba – Mexico – the USA-Canada-USA (San Francisco). After that, through Vladivostok and Mongolia, the traveler returned to his native Almaty.

Support of NGO “KZ BIKE” is provided by the akimat of Almaty and the traffic police Department.
