The frozen road

Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this short film charts my winter journey into the Canadian Arctic as I completed my bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by Jack London’s assertion, that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, I sought an adventure of perfect solitude. Yet, as I came to realise, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable environment were a long way from the romantic images I’d held of this land. The Frozen Road is an honest reflection on my solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration I experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.

‘Special Jury Mention’ – Banff Mountain Film Festival

If you’ve enjoyed this film please think about donating whatever you think it was worth/can afford to help cover some of the costs of making it and releasing it for FREE! Between 2014 and 2017 I pedalled my way across five continents, filming the entire journey as I went. I’m hoping to turn that footage into a longer film later this year and so any kind support will really help make that happen 🙂 PLUS any donators will receive a download of The Frozen Road for free!

  1. Dear Ben, laying lazy on the sofa meanwhile you were „suffering“ in the snow storm: you did a wonderful movie, a real pleasure to hear and feel it and just animate to go out again and leave „comfort zone“ to feel live outside!
    Well done Ben!
