Film review: Thereabouts 3

by CyclingTips

One of our favourite cycling sites, The Inner Ring, has been kind enough to post a review of Thereabouts 3, the most recent instalment in the Morton brothers’ series of films about rediscovering their love of cycling. Here’s an excerpt:

There’s a lot to take in which makes watching this a few times enjoyable. You can start with the travel, you can take notes on rural life in Colombia, think about pro cycling or maybe reflect on why you ride.

Enjoyable as a travel documentary that explores Colombia and Colombian cycling, this shows the country’s raw appeal with dusty roads and big trucks, it’s no tourist promo but it still entices thanks to the locals. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself looking up travel to Colombia and potential routes around Boyaca and Antioquia and if not, just wondering whether you can pull off the T-shirt look. The Morton brothers are always of interest and their take on cycling is refreshing, a reminder to just ride for the sheer fun of it.

The film is available to rent or download on Vimeo.
