I think it is safe to say that the French take their cycling very seriously. That is evident in this video, which follows 57-year old Thierry Saint-Léger as he becomes the first person to cross the French Alps non-stop on a fixie. That is to say, a bike that only has one gear. There is no downshifting on this bike when the hills start to get tough. Instead, the rider just has to grit it out. Beautifully shot, and wonderful to watch, this is a short film that any cycling fan will love. Enjoy!
