Compelled by Jack London’s assertion that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, Ben drops everything to fat-bike the world, completely alone. He encounters the threat of wolves, well below-freezing temperatures, and solitude. The Frozen Road is an honest reflection on a solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration he experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.
