Bicycle, sweat and tears

The alternative to the real tour: Team Rynkeby − hohes C's first ride to Paris can now be experienced in a documentary.

How it feels to ride 874 kilometres on a racing bike can be intensively experienced in the documentary "Close the Gap". The film accompanies Team Rynkeby − hohes C on its first ride from Nieder-Olm to Paris.

At the end of June 2019, the first German offshoot of Europe's largest cycling charity project, Team Rynkeby, set out with 30 riders to raise money for seriously ill children and their families. Filmmaker Tom Summerfield was there with camera and drone and captured all the ups and downs of the riders. The result is 30 intense minutes full of emotions, team spirit, sweat, pain and laughter. After the real tour had to be cancelled due to the Corona situation this is now a nice alternative.
