The film documentary we’re co-producing ‘Mountain Biking – The Untold British Story’, has not only smashed its crowdfunding goal … but our partners have started filming in earnest.

We’re now trying to push the total over the £20,000 mark, in the final hours of the crowdfunding programme. As Gary Fisher explains, we still need your support …


What do you mean, rain?

With our award winning partners Blue Hippo Media, working in association with a list of wholly British sponsors Orange Bikes and Hope Technology, with support from Cotic Bikes and Natural Resources Wales, we’ve got a sneak peek from the weekend’s action, featuring MTB maverick Geoff Apps and … some drones:
