Bicycle Touring - DC to Pittsburgh to Toronto from Levi on Vimeo.

I want this to be the video you show the friends that ask, “You’re doing WHAT this summer vacation!?”

Video of my 2013 vacation: a solo unsupported bicycle tour from Washington, DC to Pittsburgh via the C&O Towpath followed by the Great Allegheny Passage route. From Pittsburgh, I used google maps turn by turn navigation set to “bicycle routes” until Toronto. The video was shot and edited by me.

Moose Lake Experiment from Eric Dennis on Vimeo.

I go on backpacking trips multiple times a year. When I started I would bring my Sony VX2100 camcorder. Over time my gear grew and grew. To the point where I was leaving many tools I had at home to reduce the weight of my pack. This project was an experiment to see if bringing everything was worth while.


I don’t particularly like my bicycle, but I don’t particularly dislike it either. It’s made of metal, which I like, but in a foreign (to me) country, which I don’t like. It does all the things it is supposed to, like roll forward and lean easily through turns, but it is a little on the aggressive…

Riding the Festive 500 in one big fat ride from Paris (FR) to Haarlem (NL) - #inonego from Rotgans & Rotgans on Vimeo.

Somewhere during Festive 500 2012 my tortured mind came up with the idea to simply do Festive 500 in one ride and “get it over with”. A year later that idea hasn’t left my head. So that’s where this brilliant (and by brilliant, i mean stupid) idea to ride Festive 500 in one ‘go’ came from. And to make this ‘easier’ I figured out that I’d start somewhere that is about 500 km from home and ride back. Paris was as random as any other ‘500km away from home’ location could have been. Only later the route turned out to coincide with the prevailing wind.

This is our story.
