DUMMY JIM (OFFICIAL) ✩ Directed by Matt Hulse ✩ Featuring Samuel Dore from Matt Hulse on Vimeo.

dummy jim was a film a long time in the making and, i've discovered, one that i totally missed the opening of last year. in a nut shell, and more details at the website here, it concerns a deaf guy, james duthie, who, in 1951, decided he was going to take himself off on a bike ride to morocco. after what i can only suspect was some epic route wrongness he found himself going up to the arctic circle.

if that story on its own isn't enough i defy you to watch the trailer and not find it fabulous. the music is available on the website but no info as to where or if the movie can be watched online or dvd. in the meantime i;d encourage you to take the time to have a browse round the website - it's totally worth it.

horace dall

back in the day rather than debating tyre choice or the minutiae of which bike does what best daring sould got their maps out, packed their bags and went out there.

one of those is horace dall who got himself out to iceland back in 1932/33. you can see a slideshow of his pictures and some rather fabulous notes from his trip here. thanks to ben searle for putting this up and it's worth checking out the rest of the site while you're at it, not least to see kelly kettles in action. there's another feature on this at the reykjavik grapevine which is also worth checking out on its own
