Guillaume was looking for a way to get from Montreal, QC to Portland ME to surprise his girlfriend. In desperate need of adventure, and with the aim of helping the environment, he decided to bike home. Little did he know that this crazy idea would turn out to be his greatest adventure yet.

Three thoughts from the filmmaker:

The most difficult part of the film was having to bike away from the camera and then having to come back to get it. Sometimes I would have to go up very steep hills multiple times in order to get the shot but it was absolutely worth it in the end!
