In the freezing month of October 2012, three friends set out on their first fixed gear tour, spanning nearly six hundred kilometres across Ontario from Sudbury to Toronto. With twenty-five pounds strapped to their backs, they completed the trip in five days, documenting the process using helmet cameras and deciding to "throw something together" when they got back.
This is that film. And while it's arguably "thrown together," we think you'll enjoy it.
