Time to let the cat out of the bag. Actually, that’s not accurate. We’d never put a cat in a bag. That seems cruel. Ok, maybe a kitten playing but just for a second…I digress.
We’ve been working on a new adventure film project, “Off the Beaten Path” and, to be honest, we’ve been having a lot of fun along the way. The focus is on fat biking and showcasing that fat biking is somewhat of a natural progression of mountain biking. Early mountain bikers were looking to create bikes that allowed them to ride on terrain and in conditions they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Many now look to fat bikes for the same reason.
Expect a unique cast of characters and imagery of bikes riding in places bikes have never been. Check back soon for more images, updates and links to places where people are talking about “Off the Beaten Path”. You can see some low-res video frame grabs from some of our early shoots below. Go West Foto has some high-res images too. And, if you’ve got questions about the project, interest in getting involved on some level, or have a great micro-brew to recommend, hit us up.
Update 2 A pre, pre-teaser…This is just some self-shot riding featuring Anthony from First Tracks and Emmie. No full production crew or athletes in this clip, but some sweet views and a goofy dog:
