Jeff Jones makes bicycles which are pretty divisive – you either love them or hate them (often without having ridden them either way) but it’s difficult to sit in the middle. And now he’s teamed up with a local film-maker to bring you this little movie, which mixes talking-heads style documentary with riding footage – of all flavours.

I must say, the trails look pretty amazing…

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome. He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable. Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles. He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds. He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.
