Biking with no brakes or gears

Location: Swiss Alps

Patrick Seabase took on the hardest challenge of his career

cycling 205 miles and climbing 8,500 meters in a day with one fixed gear

For his latest stunt titled “UnBRAKEable” he crossed five mountains

and faced unpredictable temperatures, steep descents, and harsh headwinds

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PATRICK SEABASE, SAYING:

“The main difference between a road bike and a track bike is, there’s only one gear, on the track bike there’s no brakes, no physical handbrakes and as soon as the wheel turns, the pedal turns as well. So you’re basically constantly pedaling. // But will power is the most important thing.”
