B'Hike & BASE Jump Across the Alpes

The idea of ​​linking The place where I work to the place where I was born on a bicycle came naturally. But my dream was to know if it would be possible to make such a trip by combining Base Jump. Taking a map of the Alps, I realize the journey as beautiful as exciting who can wait for me. The Valais, Chartreuse, Vercors, Dévoluy, Verdon as many playgrounds that can potentially be on my way. First and foremost, I want to know the feasibility of this crazy project that will exceed 1000km of bike and must be done on at least a month.

The B'Hike and BASE-jump adventure is a unique experience: a trip combining bicycle, BASE-jump, Paragliding and more…..
Francky will travel for a month and a half on his bike, with his camping gear and when he is not pedaling he will put his mountaineering and BASE-jumping skills to the test on the highest cliffs and peaks that the Swiss and French Alps has to offer.
An endless road, impressive passes, a discovery of the unknown, lost corners where he plants his tent in the pine forests, that's what punctuates his days. At each stage friends find us to BASE-jump with Francky.

We bathed in lakes and took beautiful hikes, like climbing Mount Granier where we discover the panoramic view of the mountains of Chambéry.
At 27, Francky wants to undertake a challenge of endurance and adrenaline with the simple aim of arriving safely having completed 1200 km by bike, 20+ BASE-jumps and 40 days camping while crossing the Alps arriving in Nice.
Great sensations of freedom, in the presence of a wild nature and breathtaking landscapes of mountains and alpine peaks that will make you dizzy.

Francky is very comfortable in this environment. Even though he must fight against the rain and wind that will slow and plague his journey especially through the Annecy area. Having stopped in Annecy he takes his guitar into the local streets to play a new song he has made up on his bike while pushing through kilometer after kilometer that catches the attention of many passersby. Francky does not consider himself a cyclist, nor a parachutist, but a great adventurer, passionate about traveling in the wilderness. Above all he shows his energetic spirit and love for adventure as he flys out over the cliffs and mountain valleys ... Along to share the experience and tell Francky’s story by documenting the journey is Jeremy Condamine a photographer and filmmaker and his small production team Laura Morris and Marley St. John, together they capture this unpredictable quest from Switzerland to the Mediterranean Sea.
