Just be careful if you have seizures.

I think that's probably the most irritating video I've ever seen. I was waiting for it to start properly.
May satan walk with you.

Ow my brain. Not seen anything as bad as that since the spoof opening credits of The Day Today. Accompanied by the most monotonous commentary I've ever heard, almost a "rap" in fact! "Cycling is fun" yer man drones on, as if he was talking about boiling his head. Quite bizarre. I'm going for a lie down.

Ha, you old duffers! :wink:

Made me chuckle.

The first and last bits brought back long buried memories of when the CIA caught me. If you watch it again in slow motion, there is a subliminal picture repeated a couple of times of a saucy nature.

The whole thing reminded me of a Throbbing Gristle presentation with contributions from the BBC Radiophonic workshop.

Plus it's got bears in it.

What's not to like?

That was brilliant.

Turn off the auto pause.... (That's always so annoying, I've not missed that while riding solo I can tell you)

Statistics are for accountants..... (That's yet another reason I'm glad I gave up Strava)

That was excellent. Literally smiled all the way through.

Better then the normal anal gazing nonsense that we've been getting the past few years. Something unique.

I agree, I quite enjoyed that too. Alot of editing to make it and something a bit different

Woah, easy tiger! We need more info on the CIA!!

Also, I need to go back and rewatch this now for the saucy pictures, I mean, the quality of filming... :grin:

Neat film, not sure what I’ve just watched but it was certainly fun and quirky :lol:

Ok, it's just us old fart grandads then :wink: . I'm at ease with that - even 'The Trip' and 'The Royle Family' moved along a bit too fast for me...

I get a bit dizzy watching that too :wink: .

I love wacky and off the wall things, and this is certainly creative I'll grant ya that - but so were William McGonagall and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy :smile: .

I'll admit to finding it refreshing Reg. Certainly different to (as Greg says) the usual introspective navel gazing that's become the norm.

Unwatchable is my assesment- cannot say about the content or humour but the flashing changing images was not something i was prepared to endure for their humour.

I believe we've stepped past naval gazing in a lot of the more recent "films" Stu. Hence my comment.

For me, Slovenia has really been on list of future trips after a few articles and images on a european bikepacking FB page, so was actually hoping to learn something and steal a few ideas, but it was too busy trying to be artistic to be informative for me, but then i am probably not target audience...

Absolutely fantastic film. Editing perfect and I am in love with the irony of the robot voiceover which reminds me of the Alternative Swindon Town commentaries https://twitter.com/marleystfc/status/1 ... 85?lang=en (NSFW)
