Video: BC Builders: Retallack
Nov 14, 2012
Freehub Magazine in association with Pinkbike.com, Art Barn Film and Cycle Devinci went on a journey in this one-off episode to showcase a portion of the mountain biking culture in British Columbia. This episode conveys the strength of one BC mountain bike community that helps drive and fuel modern riding. ‘BC Builders’ expresses the process, passion, and function behind building and riding on progressive trails at a professional level. The intention was to capture the power and fulfillment of both builder and rider in the quest for creating and riding new terrain. Retallack Lodge was the perfect venue as they are currently building a new trail system that helps support both the local bike scene and the mountain biking community as a whole. Take a look at the people that help make this all possible.
