LENGTH OF SWEDEN is an endurance ride documentary—following Erik Nohlin, Rita Jett and Kristian Hallberg on the Sverigetempot randonée along the endless, monotonously spine of sparsely populated Scandinavia.
After multiple screenings and a little festival tour we are pleased to finally see LENGTH OF SWEDEN available on Vimeo on demand. Your support in form of a slim rental fee allows us to keep the project alive, help us fund public screenings and plan cycling related documentaries with the glorious adventure team at Specialized in the future.

The word ‘epic’ is often over used, but when it comes from our friend Marc Maurer, who last year rode from Cologne to the Black Sea and decided rather than to fly home, he’d just turn around and ride back…we had to pay attention. Marc’s journey was fully justified as ‘epic’ he left in May 2015 headed for Istanbul, Turkey and the Caucasus mountains. His journey was a total of 5600km, passing through culturally rich regions of Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and finally Iran.
Bought a couple of bits from http://www.middleofnowhere.cc including the free calendar download for this month.
Cima Coppi is make an great range of woollen kit. They were based in Vancouver, but have just moved to Asturias in Spain — home of the notorious Vuelta climb, the Angliru. Director Ben Johnson just made a superb short film depicting the region’s epic riding.
David Millar will remember the Angliru fondly: he dramatically laid down his bike a half-meter from the summit finish on Stage 15 in the 2008 Vuelta in protest at the mountain’s inclusion.
Tom Donhou recounts a special trip to test his latest creation
English frame builder Tom Donhou knows a thing or two about what it takes to assault an overland journey by bicycle. To test his new production model, the DSS2, he chose the far northern climes of the Sprengisandsleið region of Iceland.
With photographer George Marshall in tow, the two started from Keflavik in the south of the island and headed across a volcanic desert to Akureyri in the north.
In the meantime, read more about their amazing journey over at the Brooks Blog.
