Video: Letter From Lapland

Making a film of my cycle tour in Norway and Sweden this winter was never part of the plan. But long hours in the saddle tend to generate ideas. It’s short — only two minutes — and sweet. Enjoy!

Tom, rarely does a film grab me as much as yours just has! Touching to the tip of inspiration for all things, a creative mind sees it as a masterpiece and the rider in me see’s it with envy, which is quickly replaced by dusting my bike off and heading out on to the moors! Thank you!

Thank you for the kind words Reuben, I’m really happy this video has mostly gone down well — it’s encouraging me to keep at it and make the next one better still.

I love how you undermine everything you’re doing with your comments about the coldness and road conditions and make it all seem so beautiful and worth it. This is really high quality stuff. I’d totally buy a copy of your film.

Good video. Liked the fact that you mentioned the challenges along with the joys. Wouldn’t have thought there would have been very many birds singing. In the cold Canadian winter days I experienced as a child, I only remember the silence and the crunching of the snow beneath my feet. Just goes to show how tricky memory is. 

Had a great time reading about your travels.
