Heavy doses of drugs and profanity. Not all that funny.

I'm sure most readers here know about Bicycle Touring Pro aka Darren Alff. His Youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/bicycletouringpro/videos

I was especially inspired by the scenery on Lofoten islands in Norway. They're at a cycling distance from home for me (only 1400 km to Tromsø ). I hope to get there one day.

Short (takes about 2 min to get through the back story intro), and lacking in any sort of actual touring content, but some of the best camera work and production (including drones following) I've seen over the past couple weeks of digging around YouTube.

GOING AWOL ON THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RACE
What began as a spontaneous idea soon became a trip into the unknown. A grand journey of trusting your given abilities, both physically and mentally.
The final Episode ties the knot around the adventure and most important: The story of Erik and Recep riding the **** out of their bikes to Istanbul.
London to Istanbul within two weeks, overcoming more than 3100km,
30.000m of altitude gain and crossing 14 european borders.
Unsupported, following a route of their choice, day and night, rain or shine, crossing the European continent: The Transcontinental Race.

The Trail To Kazbegi

https://vimeo.com/148894085

What happens when four like-minded adventurers head into one of the world’s wildest mountain ranges with nothing but their mountain bikes and enough food to survive for 10 days?
The answer? What doesn’t happen? Terrifying lightning storms. Raging-river crossings. Snow-covered glacial pass traverses. Mind-melting descents. Constant fights with vicious dogs. Tense encounters with over-zealous border-patrol guards.
All of the above were just another day following “The Trail to Kazbegi,” a self-supported mountain-bike mission through the highest reaches of the Caucasus Mountains in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. Our four-man team—adventure filmmaker Joey Schusler, Bike magazine editor Brice Minnigh, photographer Ross Measures and mountain man Sam Seward—spent half of June 2015 exploring the crown jewels of the Georgian High Caucasus on a feature assignment for Bike.
Along the way our crew overcame countless obstacles and experienced some of the most spectacular scenery and trails they had ever encountered. They also were treated to the unparalleled hospitality of the Georgian people and the benign indifference of the elements on their quest to reach the magnificent Mount Kazbek. In the process, they cemented lasting friendships and proved, yet again, that life is simply better in the mountains.

I enjoyed the 'Fat Man on a Bicycle' travelogs by the late Tom Vernon, broadcast decades ago on the BBC and PBS. He cycletoured in Argentina, Scandinavia and most famously in France. Alas, the BBC has not seen fit to re-release these videos.
