The program

Welcome Opening (five min): from the Kimberley Trails Society and the Bike Park Committee

Electrify The Mountains – Short (five min): A local short documentary on the Electrify The Mountains project, Directed / Produced / Edited by local videographer Lukas Nemeth.

Bike Park Project Update (five min): We will present timelines, drawings, and a summary of current & future fundraiser efforts.

Electrify The Mountains – Adaptive Cycling E-bike Speech (10 min): Details to be announced.

Dirt Magic (20 min): Dirt Magic, a short film by Teton Gravity Research and Freehub Magazine, follows Downieville’s incredible transformation and the characters who helped make it happen. Downieville It was a stark change from the heyday of the California gold rush, in which miners from all over flocked to claim the area’s riches. But as the gold dwindled, so went the miners.

Intermission (30 min): Get social, grab a drink (pops and Overtime beer will be available for sale) and check all the surprises KTS has put together for you.

Sponsor Raffle (10 min): We will be raffling door prizes with a Dometic Cooler, Kids Ride Shotgun, and various prizes from our local sponsors. We will also be announcing our future raffle: a custom built Dirt Jump bike, going live in June! [MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED].

Esperanto (50 min): The film explores how we share our dreams through a universal two-wheeled language no matter what our native tongue may be. The sacred ritual of the ride might sound different all across the world – whether it’s a full-face getting pulled down to drop into a big jump line or wheeling a beat-up bike out of a mud hut to pedal to school – but it’s a universal process no matter what language we speak.

The event is 50% sold out and all proceeds go to fund the Bike Park.
