Our Judges say:
Intelligent and entertaining meditation on riding one of the Fred Whiten, one of the ultimate passes in the Lake District and a glorious sportive. Human, heartwarming and engaging, this is a most rewarding film.
Paul Hodgson Music Judge
A scenic British Road cycling challenge. A Fred-venture.
Claire Carter Writer, Film Officer for Kendal Mountain Festival, 'Creative Consultant'.
A bike film not looking for kudos, how good done that sound?

The Fred Whitton Challenge is an iconic, 112-mile cycle challenge over all the major passes of the Lake District National Park. It’s beautiful, difficult, simple, but not easy. Most people ride it in one day, but Alastair Humphreys turned it into an overnight microadventure by packing his bivvy bag and sleeping high in the fells.
