Very much looking forward to this 4-part web-series starting later this month. This trailer already has us thinking about a trip to the States lesser known east coast…
For years now, we’ve seen and been inspired by mountain bike films and features from production companies such as Anthill Films, Red Bull Media, the Coastal Crew, Freeride Entertainment and many more. These folks have offered up some inspired filmmaking featuring world class talent and trails that belong on bucket lists everywhere.
And that’s what mountain bike movies are for, right? They inspire us to get on the trails and push ourselves and our bikes to the next level. They remind us that while fitness is great, style ain’t so bad either. They remind us that hard work plus a strong community pays off with inspiring trails and amazing riders. They are the pinnacle of expression on two wheels.
So why don’t we see projects of similar scope coming from the east coast? We’ve been waiting and waiting for these production companies to turn their attention to the diverse and beautiful terrain we all know we have. But it hasn’t happened, so we’ve decided to grab the bull by the horns and do it ourselves.
“From Where We Stand” is about showing the world just how much beauty can be found in unexpected places. It’s about the talent that comes from our rocky, rooty and gnarled terrain. It’s about the shared vision and hard work from riders who want to see better design and more trails. It’s about celebrating the green tunnel. It’s about a heaping helping of rocks with some flowy, hero dirt for dessert.
More than anything, it’s about countless regions forming one, devoted collection of people. The east coast is comprised of millions of mountain bikers who make up thousands of groups, clubs and organizations. The truth is, we can’t think of anywhere else you will find such a close knit group of people in such a far reaching community.
“From Where We Stand” was shot in Oneonta, NY; Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, NJ; Middle Run and White Clay Creek State Park in Newark, DE and on the slopes of Mount Penn in Reading, PA. The featured riders include: Dane Clay, Paul Dotsenko, Jeff Lenosky, Matt Miller, Logan Mulally, Neko Mulally, Harlan Price, George Ryan, Sam Brown-Shaklee, Brice Shirbach and several others.
We’ll release “From Where We Stand” as a 4-part web series starting in late December. After our final episode, the full feature will be available for viewing as well.
The world is full of amazing places to ride your bike.
The east coast is no exception. It’s our turn to inspire the world.
