2 Wheels Tutors is an informal education and adventure seekers initiative. We travel the world to discover, experience and inspire students.
In 2015, 2 Wheels Tutors went on their first expedition “2 Wheels 2 Capes”. Tutors Mārtiņš Sils and Andžs Ūbelis went on to conquer the continent of Africa on their motorbikes by going from the South point in Cape Town to the farthest point in Europe, Nordkapp. 13 Latvian schools participated providing Tutors with almost 200 questions. Tutors had to not only become journalists and dancers, but also to teach Latvian folk songs to locals.
Next expedition “2 Wheels 2 Americas” in 2016 attracted 27 Latvian schools and Tutors had their hands full of almost 600 tasks and questions. During the expedition Tutors discovered the secrets of South America thanks to student eagerness to know the world. At this time Tutors also established a cooperation with erudition game for students “Gudrs, vēl gudrāks” broadcasted by Latvian television. Tutors send in questions from all over the world for students to answer and get a step closer to the victory.
Between the expeditions Tutors agreed that they need to reveal hidden treasures of their home country Latvia, so the competition “Student, discover Latvia!” was opened. In two rounds Tutors found unseen places of Latvia and learned a lot of stories about different people living in Latvia.
Right now 2 Wheels Tutors are on the road continuing the expedition “2 Wheels 2 Continents”. They are traveling around Australia’s vast expanses and you can follow their adventures here and also on our 2WheelsTutors Instagram account.
