This video by Andy Wardman which you can find below this short text is already a few months old, but it is a very refreshing video done by a single person. There’s a lot of effort as you’re going downhill, film it, ride back up and check if it’s good – if not, redo the whole thing and then in the end piece the dozens of video bits into a single movie for our viewing pleasure.

Also worth noting in the video is the lack of music, apart from the melodies of rubber hitting dirt and birds chirping. Enjoy!

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
