Flat Out Teaser Feb 15, 2010

“Flat Out” Teaser from FLAT OUT PRODUCTIONS on Vimeo.

Here’s a teaser for the forthcoming Flat Out film. Lookin good. I still have no idea how you guys rode in shorts and t-shirts! Must have been hellishly hot!

Information is below:

The Australian’s call it Walkabout, a chance to escape from the routine, heading into the empty wilderness to empty the body and soul of built up trash, we call it FLAT OUT.

Using the simplest and cleanest form of transport, a Track bike. Four cyclists, meet at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, to embark on a journey into extreme terrain during dangerous summer conditions, riding a massive 1200km of road in only ten days to the city of Melbourne.

With the monumental landscapes of Australia as the backdrop, a country and continent all in one that has some of the most diverse wildlife and landscapes on the planet, this challenging and hill ridden terrain proved the perfect situation to film a documentary. The riders were captured having to conquer their own inner demons to complete the journey within the ten days. Cycling an average 8 hours a day getting from one destination to the next, this experience allowed all of them to take stock and reflect, traveling on a more spiritual and inward journey. Each rider’s story being expressed individually using words, photos; drawings, music and a personal diary filmed on super 8 films. This will result in a film and book capturing the journey and experience from start to finish available later this year.

The question is… did they make it?

FLAT OUT is made up of individuals who share a common interest in riding Track bikes.

    Good teaser.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is now doing these cross-country fixed rides?

  • charles schoen

    makes me want to do something like this over the summer… maybe cleveland to new york!

  • sancho

    Agree. ^^

  • Jerrylikesbikes

    Brings tears to my eyes and makes me feel worthless for not doing this myself.

  • prettyboy

    Not content with doing this ride in 6 days on a couple of occasions. Scooter is considering doing it with a three day time frame. He say’s ‘I’ll just sleep on the side of the road”, with no support vehicle too. This is the man who created the BBQ500 and then road it. To say he’s a hard bastard on a bike is an understatement.
