Synopsis

It is the story of Mr Le Van Long, called Mr Tu Long, who particularly loves cycling. Despite his age of 86, he still practices cycling every day. He occasionally joins his friends who share the same interest in organizing long journeys by bycicle. In February 2012, Mr Tu Long decided to join the program named “Spring Jorney of Wheeling”: it consists in covering the path through Khanh Le mountain pass, which connects the two cities of Da Lat and Nha Trang and it is famous for its difficulty. Although many people worried that Mr Long might fail to finish this path, after three hours, the cyclist climbed to the top of Khanh Le mountain pass with an iron will and strong determination.
