Synopsis: In 2010, four Canadian friends craving adventure and a way to give back, had a crazy idea… “Let’s ride across Canada on ONE bike and let’s do it for charity!” A four person Quad-Tandem bike was built and the Tandem Tour Foundation was born.

Two tours and eight years later, the third and final tandem tour begins. Unlike the past two tours, this one will be a race. A British team of professional cyclists have built their own four person bike and have agreed to race down the west coast of America. The goal will be to raise $50,000 for the mental health charity “To Write Love on Her Arms.”

The first ever (unofficial) Quad-Tandem World Cup begins. The Canadian team’s primary concern is fundraising, but they soon realize that the Brits are here to race first and fund-raise second. The problem is the Canadians are NOT cyclists, nor did they train for a full blown bike race. In over their heads, they fight to win against all odds and still raise money for their cause. As they battle the elements, mechanical issues and physical exhaustion, their lifelong friendship might just pop under the pressure. What was initially a ride for charity, is becoming a test for the Canadian’s own mental health.

But, as much as a sixteen foot bicycle can break you down, it’s from the rubble that stronger bonds might form. And so this rag-tag group of underdogs could surprise us all in the end. Including the Brits…

Director's Statement

As much as this was a journey for the riders, this was a journey for me. I’ve never been pushed so hard as a film maker both physically and mentally. In the end, I think that struggle came through and left me feeling as much a part of this story as the people on the screen.
