The Cross Canada Project

I've just watched Mike Beauchamp's brilliant DVD - The Cross Canada Project. Mike used an improvised camera rig fixed to his bike frame to ingeniously film himself while riding along on his 7292km journey from Vancouver, BC to Halifax, NS in 2005.

The resulting 2009 documentary is very professionally edited and produced. At an hour long, it has plenty of time to convey the length and sheer enormity of his marathon ride. The "director's commentary" is particularly fine. Nice one Mike!

The 7 minute trailer is a good appetiser. Go on, press the play button...
