Freedom Riders - Pioneers of Mountain Biking

Video; Streaming Video; Online
In the 1970s, the Marin Klunkers, pioneers of mountain biking, shaped the industry with innovations from retrofitting bikes to blazing trails. Twenty years later, riders blazed a new sport down the Teton Pass - Freeride Mountain Biking, but at this time it was illegal. Nevertheless the sport grew, and trails were built.. The Forest Service tried to close the trails, but the bikers removed the obstacles and continued on, only to have the Service again 'close' the trails. Eventually, the Teton Pass riders distinguished themselves by reaching out to the Forest Service for a mutually acceptable solution and a trail was finally allowed, making it the first, permitted, downhill-specific trail in the country..
