For three months Yvonne Blomer travelled by bike with her husband Rupert Gadd through Southeast Asia. A type one diabetic since childhood, she also dealt with the daily challenges of her chronic illness. Part love story, part travel adventure and part medical dance, “Sugar Ride” explores one woman’s passion for cycling and the roads it pulls her along. Blomer details the couple’s experiences and impressions as they explore Vietnam, Malaysia, Laos and Thailand, four countries with long histories of colonialism and war. Through the use of lyrical notes, past and present speak to each other across time and space.
