Back in June and July of 2018, my girlfriend Belén and I cycled the famed ‘Pamir Highway’, through Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. During our trip we met a tremendous amount of cyclists, who all had different reasons to be out there, and it inspired us to create this short film, highlighting why we cycle.

Music by James Everingham, legend!

Special thanks to all the cyclists who told us their reasons for being on the saddle – for the complete version of all the interviews, watch
