    Earlier this year I boarded a plane bound for Europe. With no firm plans, I was able to freely roam, discovering new places and meeting new people. One of these people was Mathieu Le Lay, a French adventurer and filmmaker, and someone who’s work I’ve followed on Vimeo for quite a while. After hearing I was in London, he very kindly invited me to come and explore France with him, to which I keenly accepted. It’s times like this I really love the internet, and more so Vimeo, connecting two people with a similar love of filmmaking from opposite sides of the earth. It was really great getting to know Mathieu, hearing about his work and creativity, and seeing his passion and love for what he does. While adventuring in the French Alps near his current home in Annecy, and exploring his home town of Brittany, I turned on my camera and started to shoot. I didn’t really know what I was making, but inspired by Mathieu’s connection with nature and the wild, and myself in awe of the beautiful landscapes, I continued shooting. Things began to evolve, the final result being this short film. Thanks for having me Mathieu, and showing me around your beautiful country. Was an honour and great pleasure to work with you on this film, and can’t wait to come back to France! Keep inspiring people with your incredible work.

            Now the weather is drawing in, here's a reminder of summer; blue skies, golden sunshine, shorts and short sleeve jerseys. We've added some mountains into the mix too, just to make sure you really miss 'those' days even more. We caught up with Gaby at her base in the French Alps before the Transcontinental Race to see how the preparation was going. Gaby talks us through how she became a cyclist and offers tips for any aspiring climbers. All the early prep paid off and Gaby finished a very close second after 12 and half days of racing across the Continent on her Charge Skewer Ti. You can hear Gaby's experience after finishing the Transcontinental Race here https://vimeo.com/108915885 Music By Sam Brookes http://www.sambrookes.com

                    A spontaneous idea grew and grew. At the end of the planning Fabian and I started for a 24-day adventure tour through the French Alps, Liguria and the Côte d'Azur. Visiting friends, riding bikes and a lot sun. Those things are the best ingredients for three great weeks and an awesome roadtrip.

                      “Hangout” is a phrase meaning to be with with his friends, and it is this spirit, this way of life we wanted to immerse yourself in the atmosphere that drives our travels.
