In the Summer of 2013, I left my new home in Pokhara, Nepal to spend four months cycling and paragliding in Northern India. I spent 7 weeks cycling some of the highest roads in the world, living outdoors and at high altitude. On the very first day of riding I met three people whose company would completely alter the nature of my journey: JeanDa and Leo, from Switzerland, and Anthony, a Croatian from Germany.
This short video is an attempt to capture what it was like to be constantly on the move for those seven weeks; how it felt to ride through (and be lost within) some of the most breathtaking--and serious--scenery on earth.
I know I say this about damn near everything I do these days, but if you ever have a chance (or can make one) to ride the Manali-Leh Highway, or to ride down into Zanskar Valley, take it. Do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Thanks for watching!
