Radu Paltineanu - Adventurer & Long Distance Touring Cyclist (Romania)
Canadian-Romanian, mountaineer, cyclist and blogger, Radu is above all, passionate about adventure and travel. If in 2013 he went from Scandinavia to Eastern Europe (via Russia) on a bicycle (over 2,400 km) to create awareness about the mining project at Roşia Montană. The year that followed, made him hitchhike from France to Iran.
At the end of the 14,000-kilometer expedition between Paris and Teheran, Radu organizes an ascent on the Damavand Peak (5671 m), the highest volcanic peak in Asia, starting the "7 Volcanic Summits" project.
In 2015, Radu proposed a more ambitious project, namely to be the first Romanian to cross the Americas on a bicycle, from Alaska to the south of Argentina, pedalling through all the northern, central and South American countries. In short, this means over 34,000 km of pedalling (initially the project included only 24,000 km north-south direction), 22 countries (+1 territory) (initially the project included only 14 countries) and many difficulties and obstacles.
Moreover, within the same expedition, Radu took two spectacular ascents on the highest volcanic peak of North America, Orizaba (5636 m) and on the highest volcanic peak of South America, Oyos del Salado (6893 m).
