Thanks, Rual -- what a great choice:  splendid film, remarkable landscapes.

As for "testing limits", my reckoning these days is a bit more prosaic:  In about ten days, we've gone from a decidedly cool-and-late spring, with daytime highs around 4 or 5, to nearly mid-summer, with daytime highs in the low 30s, and the humidex in the mid-to-high 30s.

So, I'm looking verrry cautiously at a 3 1/2-hour there-and-back up into the Gatineau Hills across the river.

Cheers,  John

Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival is currently showing online.

Of particular note to cyclists is Scotswoman Jenny Graham's round the world record breaking trip from 2018, showing in her film Eastbound.

Four adventure films including Eastbound for 9.70

Or the whole festival (about 50 films) for $85 Canadian.
