Le Tour des Alpilles - A Biking and Climbing Roadtrip Video

Caroline Ciavaldini and James Pearson embark on a biking and climbing trip through the south of France in this short film.

Good vid, as usual from them.

Good to hear that they're limiting their travel compared to previously, but thought that we need to be realistic about whether other people can do the same so well. We don't all live in such an amazing area.

But still cool

Nice film

How did they recharge the bikes when camping?

Or the drones?

Or the back up film crew? 😃

Great video. Really good to see some of those more obscure limestone crags.

I was a bit worried about some of those off-road tracks and bouncing a toddler down them, but I'm sure they were sensible about it.

I don't think they were camping - I think the trailer was for climbing kit and they were staying in B&Bs or something??
