Two Scots adventure cyclists take on a four-month, 4,000 mile journey across North America, from the east coast at Plymouth to the west coast at Seattle. With no support team and only tents for accommodation, a simple bike ride becomes a challenging adventure as they encounter bears, storms, empty prairies, intense heat, mechanical failures, and a colourful set of characters along the road. Experience the joys of the journey with two intrepid travellers and discover the real America in the small, friendly towns, the spectacular landscapes and the warmth and kindness of the people. This is an NTSC region 1 DVD (USA & Canada). It is new and shrink-wrapped. On occasion we may run out depending on demand, but additional stock normally arrives and ships out within 2 weeks.

Like many good national portraits, this is told by outsiders looking in, but it also has the merit of being a practical guide. America comes over as beautiful and hospitable, but this film doesn't shy from exploring the risks involved in this kind of endeavour or gloss over the uglier aspects of the country's past and present. Anyone considering cycling in America, or just looking for a snapshot of a country that goes beyond the obvious landmarks, will enjoy this travelogue.
My wife and I first saw Pauline and Graham in 2011 at a small campground near Shelby, Montana. Like them we also were heading west, but by car, not bicycle. I was intrigued by their views on the U.S. and its people, and later my band, Shady Grove, recorded much of the music for Graham's video.
Sleepless 'Til Seattle is a great outsider's view of the states, and of what it takes to pedal across its 4000 miles. The filming is first rate, and the story heartwarming. It provides a fresh look beyond that of the evening news of small town America - its towns, roads, trails, and the hospitality of its people.
What a great idea to travel by bicycle along the old canals in the eastern U.S.--these old
canals are very historic.
The story is adventurous, enthusiastic, and full of a sense of humor...which you must
have to endure such a long trip!
I encourage anyone who is interested in doing this kind of a trip to watch this video!!
