The Frozen Road – The Film
Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this film charts Ben Page’s winter journey into the Canadian Arctic as he completed his bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by Jack London’s assertion, that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, He sought an adventure of perfect solitude. ‘The Frozen Road’ is an honest reflection on his solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration he experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.
