Mountain bike clubs and other groups across the country are signing up to host screenings of Pedal-Driven. The feature-length documentary explores conflicts and confrontations between mountain bikers and public land managers. The film is receiving positive reviews and demand to host screenings is climbing fast.
“The response to the film has been excellent — it’s a winning combination of dynamic images and a compelling storyline,” said Mike Van Abel, IMBA’s executive director. IMBA frequently consulted with the filmmakers during the production.
“We worked hard to capture the beauty and intensity of mountain biking,” says director Jamie Howell. “The riding scenes give the film a visually impressive look, but it also explores important issues, like the need for land stewardship and strategies for improving trail access.”
Pedal-Driven is now available for public screenings organized by bike organizations, land management agencies and private individuals. IMBA chapters and clubs receive a substantial discount on screening fees.
Upcoming show dates include:
- Leavenworth, WA, on May 13
- Seattle, WA, on May 14
- North Bend, WA, on May 15
- Wenatchee, WA, on May 20
- Castlegar, BC, on May 27
Major funding for the film was provided by the following sponsors: Shimano, Specialized, Clif Bar, Diamondback, Yakima Racks, Pyramid Brewing Company, City of Leavenworth, Timberland, and Steven’s Pass Bike Park, with promotional support from Pinkbike.com, Bike Magazine, and Singletrack.com.
