Zimbabwean mountain bike rider Blake Samson travels the UK in search of adventure, seeking new meaning to the land where he now resides. An Animal production, ‘Finding Home’ explores Blake’s desire to ride different terrain and discover new possibilities on a variety of two-wheeled machines.

Venturing from the Isle of Wight to the Highlands of Scotland, this is a mountain bike journey of epic proportions, beautifully crafted and curated by the very talented Nico Turner.

Finding Home

In an age of 2-minute throwaway pieces of video, you sometimes need to gather yourself, make a cheeky cuppa and take the time to enjoy the passion for exploration that lives in these lands.

Thank you for watching.
