In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I get to chat with the organizer of the Filmed by Bike Festival, Ayleen Crotty. Unlike many of the Adventure Film Festivals out there, this festival is specifically aimed at showcasing the world best bike movies. As many bike tourers out there produce movies and short films of their adventures, I figured this is the perfect festival to highlight on the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast. I also have the privilege of having a chance to speak with Rugile Kaladyte, winner of the Filmed by Bike’s Audience Choice Award for her film “I Just Want to Ride” in which she followed Leal Wilcox on her 2019 attempt at beating the fastest known time of the Tour Divide.
