This short film tells the story of the 2012 Single Speed World Champs held in Africa for the first time.

Was it a dream? Was it a folk-tale? Did these protagonists come here to fight on old battlegrounds or did they come in celebration? Perhaps they just looking for a journey, a chance to travel back to the start, to rediscover their love for the bike.
Inspired by TS Eliot’s Little Gidding, this short film tells the story of the 2012 Single Speed World Champs held in Africa for the first time.
