Often whilst riding fixed gear you get asked the questions, ‘why one gear’ or ‘where are you’re breaks’ or my personal favourite, ‘don’t you just crash?’

Both accomplished filmmakers, this third instalment of their ongoing documentary is a pleasure to watch and gives a real feel for the solitude, efforts and meetings Gareth and Aaron have experiences in recent months.
I wish them well for the next stage of their journey, which will see them paddle the remaining few hundred miles to Belem before leaving their collapsible canoe behind and continuing on foot to Rio.
