Professional mountain biker and artist Micayla Gatto explores India’s wild variety of landscape and imagery in this spectacular short. From congested, chaotic, and beautiful urban streets to the majestic Himalaya—it’s all here. This isn’t a rip-and-tear stoke-generator, either. Rather, it’s an exploration of the country’s beauty. Gatto blends in with India’s tapestry; the people (and animals) she encounters—as well as the stunning landscape—are every bit the star of this project.

Still, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty here to inspire a bike trip somewhere this gorgeous.
