The Man Who Lived on His Bike

Riding a bicycle is one of the most exhilarating activities in the world. Whether you’re mountain biking through alpine meadows or forested hillsides, or rolling a cruiser on a town tour, biking is fun, fast and free. For an invention that’s only been around about 120 years, the bicycle certainly has impacted the world greatly. From rural areas in Vietnam to the bustling metropolis of London, England, bicycles can be found ferrying everything from packages to people to pigs and there’s no need for gasoline. In fact, the bicycle is so crucial to the daily workings of the planet, it was described as mankind’s “noblest invention” by Pulitzer Prize winning author:¬†William Saroyan.

A bike guide will be the first to tell you that a bicycle is the best way to tour. It’s faster than walking so you can see more, but it immerses you in the environment so you can take more in than you would from a car window. It’s also a fun way to exercise and you don’t have to pay for parking! From Los Angeles, California to Yangshuo, China, bike guides are prepared to show you the best their area has to offer from the vantage point atop two wheels. Of ¬†course, while all bike guides love their steeds, not many would sleep, shave and fry an egg on one. That’s exactly what Guillaume Blanchet of Montreal, Canada, did during the filming of his movie, “The Man Who Loved On His Bike.” He says, “I love being on a bike, it helps me feel free. I get it from my dad. After days and days of cycling the streets of Montreal, come cold or sun, or even a little frightened, I dedicate this film to him.” Enjoy the following video and then hire a bike guide and explore the world!
