Klunking - The Beginning of it All

Super cool film from the late '70s featuring the legendary Repack Downhill. This era being the beginning of mountain biking as we know it today. How many founding icons of the sport can you spot? Charlie Kelly, Tom Ritchey, Gary Fisher, and others - all included. I've seen numerous pictures from this time frame, pretty special to witness via film now.

Mountain biking today may look quite different, but the real beauty remains - sharing the ride with a bunch of folks, or solo - the fun and adventure of riding off-road on two wheels is the same. That will never change.

Give it a go.
