Man rides bike for 382 days on Montreal streets, and accomplishes many things

It is hardly unusual to see someone brush his teeth, fry an egg, shave, change his clothes, iron his clothes, sleep, complete a crossword puzzle, work on a laptop, solve a Rubik's cube or make business calls. However, we doubt you've ever seen someone doing all these things while riding a bike.

Now is your chance:

THE MAN WHO LIVED ON HIS BIKE from Guillaume Blanchet on Vimeo.

The video called "The Man Who Lived on His Bike" was produced, directed and starred in by cyclist Guillaume Blanchet, a filmmaker who was inspired by his father's love of cycling. He says in the film:

My father is 64 years old.

He's been riding his bike over 120,000 km.

And he keeps going...
Blanchet says on his Vimeo post that he loves being on a bike (obviously) and that "it helps me feel free; I get it from my dad."

More from his Vimeo post:

After 382 days spent riding through the streets of Montreal, being sometimes quite cold, sometimes quite hot - and sometimes quite scared, I dedicate this movie to you, Yves Blanchet :-)
At the end of the film, he does finally get off his bike. But he gives the film's credits while, naturally, riding a bike.

Thanks International Business Times!
