Paris to London
In 24 Hours
Almost a year to the day I found myself riding with seven ‘triathletes’ from Paris to London. Not content with riding the usual 3 day stage for the journey, they decided to make the trip a little more epic and ride the whole way non-stop in 24 hours…
I decided to take my camera along and make short film of the journey which you can see on my Vimeo page.
