As a present for his grandfathers 80th birthday (or in the words of his grandfather his 4th 20th birthday) film maker Florent Piovesan created this beautiful film. At the age of 14, in the North of Italy, he rode his first bike and covered over 30km’s in the Veneto region. From there his lifetime love of cycling began. Listen to him tell his story.
