: We were so taken by Markella’s tenacity - despite being dealt a hand that was out of her control, she's found ways to persevere and seek out adventures around the world. We wanted to give her the chance to take on another with the BC Bike Race. Riding a mountain bike gives Markella a chance to see the world in a different way and her revelations from the back of the BCBR pack will give you all the feels. While you enjoy this impactful film, remember that every rider has a story and it may not be too far from your own. Stay tuned for Friday's Dirt is Soft by Peter Wojnar.
