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.

Yesterday I bumped into this youtube clip:

For those that doubt the capabilities of 26'' steel wheelies!

After watching this movie I went downtown with my Sherpa riding at 30km/h  ;D

Ed Pratt has a new series on youtube, this time touring southwest England on a Thorn tandem with Rohloff.
Part one shows them collecting brand new tandem from SJSC in Bridgewater.

Not so much a movie, but a Club Tour having some deserved TLC ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6XMbuDMJEE
