"The Cross Canada Project" is a 62 minute long film that attempts to document the experiences of long-distance bicycle touring. Using a specially designed weatherproof camera mounted to his bicycle, Mike Beauchamp is able to film himself without interruption in all conditions as he attempts to ride his bicycle over 7000 KM across Canada from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way he practices "stealth camping", visits distant relatives, encounters strangers and other cyclists and explores abandoned houses. Set to an original soundtrack and using video diaries, recorded phone conversations and radio interviews, Mike illustrates the struggles of a touring cyclist and explores the vastness of the Canadian landscape... all for "something to do".
