Pedal Through 14 minutes

Pedal Through invites us into the world of director-lead Analise Cleopatra as she discovers the healing and joy of mountain biking. Analise had never camped or ridden a bike off the pavement when she decided to plan a week-long mountain biking trip with an all black female team: her close friend and fellow newcomer to the sport, Day Toliver, and professional mountain biker Brooklyn Bell. Together, they traverse the Oregon backcountry on an adventure full of exploration, curiosity, waterfalls, old growth forest, sparkling starscapes, joy, struggle, and deep healing. With raw authenticity, Analise shares all the intimate foibles, fear, fun and beauty of discovering her place in the outdoors. The landscape opens to greet her as she learns to lean into uncertainty, accept support and trust herself on this wild ride.

Resolution Race 45 minutes

“We’re not doing this to send the message to everyone that cargo bikes will reverse climate change and make us all feel amazing. It’s much more complex than that. We know not everyone can afford a bike let alone a specialist one that can carry your kids and shopping. But the way we move around now isn’t fair. Our most deprived areas are the ones being worst affected by vehicle emissions, and on the other side of the world people are suffering the consequences of our excessive carbon production.” (Lee Craigie) The climate crisis presents the biggest existential threat that we have ever faced. Time is running out, but together we can resolve to race against the climate and ecological emergency. The Resolution Race Project is all about thinking differently, working as a collective and trusting one another as we lay the foundations for a more sustainable and equitable future for everyone.
