Bikes Travel Without Riders in a Stunning Film From Cycling Canada

Impressive VFX Shows Off Country's Terrain From a Cyclist's Viewpoint

Published on

Editor's Pick

Cycling Canada showcases what it's like to traverse the country's terrain on two wheels with this stunning and unusual film featuring bikes without their riders. The bikes are shown in a variety of different environments ranging from mountain roads to cycling velodromes and road racing tracks; some are racing and some are alone but none have a rider in the saddle. As well as being visually attresting, the film does a great job of showing off Canada's amazing landscapes.

Agency Innocean Worldwide Canada worked with Sons & Daughters director Mark Zibert and a VFX team at Alter Ego to create the film, integrating CG with the help of crowd software Golaem's plug-and-play bicycle solution. Every shot had two takes, one with bike and rider, and a close match without bike and rider. Find out more by watching the Making Of video.
