‘Richmond 24’ short documentary

by CyclingTips

Richmond 24 is a new short film that follows two cyclists as they push their bodies to the limit to become the first people to cycle around Richmond Park for 24 hours — non-stop. Shot over the weekend of the Summer Solstice in June 2016 the film documents this incredible challenge; the blood,the sweat and the tears.
