The Tipping Point is the latest collaborative release from co-directors Dominic John and Jamie Edwards, whose Truth to the Process we published last fall. This time around, they’re sharing what they call a “thank you letter to the winter.” Inspired by the riding they’d been doing during the harsh British winter, made particularly difficult to endure by lockdown measures, it captures the cyclist’s journey through the depths of the darkest and coldest season, gradually progressing toward the light on the horizon as spring approaches.
As Jamie and Dominic put it, “As cyclists, we noticed a clear shift. Any traces of autumn take a bow and we’re left with winter in its purest form. The woods turn to deep, dark, earthy shades and seem devoid of life. Temperatures and traction drop hand-in-hand and rides seem to be first and foremost about escaping the house with anything beyond that considered a bonus. Autumn is long gone, spring is nowhere to be seen. It’s in that deepest and darkest chapter of the winter that we really found a certain special something. Numb fingers, wet arses, frozen toes but plenty of rewards alongside, albeit hard earned ones.”
