As a high schooler in the public housing projects of Richmond, Virginia’s East End, Monte Cosby felt his future was limited—until mountain bikes offered him a different route forward.

“Biking was probably the hardest thing to get myself into.” says Monte. “I might hate it when I start, but I love it when I finish.”

In the years since, the bike has served as the bridge between two different worlds, and a vehicle to overcome the struggles along the way. Since then, Monte has used his passion to inspire others in his community.

“I want to lead those expeditions. I want to provide that to those that don’t have accessibility,” says Monte. “Making these places feel safe, especially for black people, that’s my goal.”

Monte is a film about finding purpose through sports – and sharing it with others.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
