On 4th of August 2012, I started out to ride Wales Coast to Coast offroad on Dave Buchanan's route. I was riding to raise money for charity, specifically Cots for Tots which is part of Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal which is Bristol's Children's Hospital charity. You can find out more about the ride and my fundraising at: http://www.garyrides.co.uk

This film is my story of that ride. It doesn't tell the whole story, because it would be too long and it wasn't possible to capture that story anyway. Besides, you probably had to be there anyway, thanks crew! Anything that's obviously live, is live, and happened as seen. Anything that looks like I probably had to go back out on the route several times and film loads of riding stuff, probably is!

The story is of a 24 hour long ride that turned into 36 hours. Mainly due to weather, navigation, naivety and total inexperience doing long A-B challenges by myself.

    A bike trip from Denmark to the Swiss Alps gave voice to the asphalt that stretched through Europe during mid-summer 2013 and three friends chased southwards!

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
