In July, cyclists Alban Aubert and Hans Rey biked to and around five different volcanoes in Ecuador in just five days. Swiss photographer Patrice Schreyer documented the trip along with his wife, Floriane Boss, who captured the journey on video. Schreyer says the biggest challenges—aside from the energy it took to travel up each volcano, one right after the other—were the altitude, which at its peak was 5,000 meters (16,000 feet), and the strong winds.
