About the event: This event is part of an effort to raise awareness and funding for IMBA recognized bike clubs across the country including our very own Iron Range Off Road Cyclist (IROC).

Description: Biketown is a story of mountain bikers, unlikely partnerships and the communities they create. Struggling to find their seat at the table, mountain bikers have had to form unlikely partnerships in their fight to ride. Little did they know they were actually helping transform the identity of their communities. Specialized and Soil Searching present Biketown, a film by Freehub magazine, coming summer 2022.

Mountain bikers have a long-standing tradition of working with private property owners, land managers and governments, from the local to federal level. Often, these relationships are driven by a dedicated and passionate group of mountain bikers, trail builders and advocates, despite a sometimes turbulent and confrontational past. Biketown takes a deep dive into recreational trail development in Chisholm, Minnesota, Bellingham, Washington, Snowshoe, West Virginia and Pacific City, Oregon to explore themes at the heart of the current mountain bike movement—whether that be cooperation between the timber industry and a mountain bike community, federal forest managers and trail builders or advocacy organizations and tourism boards.

This film is a story of success, an examination of recreation paradigms spanning local and national levels, and a beacon of light illuminating the true effort it takes to create a Biketown.
