A history of the modern mountain bike, this film documents the rise of a huge cultural movement that was pioneered in Marin County on the trails of Mt. Tamaipais.
Mountain Biking was born out of the creative scene surrounding the San Francisco Bay Area HIPPIE and rock world of the 60s and 70s. This film features the characters of that day such as Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze, Charlie Kelly and Alan Bonds. The races began among friends getting stoned, partying and flying down the mountain on their pre-40s bikes with fat tires: Klunkerz. Those fun escapades turned into a sport that changed and maybe even saved the bike industry. Now, all over the world, you see people riding mountain bikes.
