“The reason I got involved with this project is because Fleur and I are on the same wave length when it comes to films and design etc and also because the project involved machines with two wheels! It was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down!”

He has written & directed three short films of his own as well as editing several projects for other people. This is the most ambitious project he has worked on yet and has inspired him to explore other documentary ideas.
“It’s been a fairly intense effort to complete this project, but the good will and support shown by people has made it more than worth while. It’s also been an eye opening experience for me in terms of both film-making and cycling…”
The Music: Barachois
Barachois' Acadian traditional music is a rhythmic, high-voltage style born in the heart of a culture kept alive through two and a half centuries on tiny Prince Edward Island, Canada. Their music has been considered by most to be at the forefront of the genre. Many of the songs they sing were originally brought over from France with some of the first settlers in North America. ©Barachois www.barachois.com
