Join us for a special film screening event of Patagonia’s newest mountain bike film, North Shore Betty. The evening will begin with a clinic around disc brake maintenance by Josh Uhl of Community Cycles, followed by a screening of the film and Q&A with the fimmakers Travis Rummel & Darcy Hennessey Turenne. Brews by Upslope, Rowdy Mermaid Kombucha and sandwiches!
A bit about the film: The misty forests above North Vancouver, British Columbia, are hallowed ground for mountain biking, a place so harrowing it’s influenced every aspect of the sport for over 30 years. It’s also where Betty Birrell, at age 45, picked up mountain biking after a career as a mountaineer and professional windsurfer. Three decades later, the single mother is a role model for her son, her friends and anyone she’s met along the way—and proof that you’re never too old to send.
