The Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden wants you to start your cycling season right, with a showing of the exciting mountain biking film out of Whistler, Strength in Numbers.
“Higher Grounds Sports and the Gentlemen will be kicking off our mountain biking season with an action-packed premier of Anthill Productions’ much anticipated new movie,” said Brian Coles with the Gentlemen’s Club.
The movie aimed to capture the diversity of the sport, from the World Cup Circuit to back yard dirt jumps; from the largest bike in the world in Whistler to remote high-alpine trails in Nepal; from the endless freeride lines in Utah to stunts built in the rain forests of British Columbia.
Strength in Numbers features a broad selection of riders with some of the biggest names in the sport, including: Andrew Shandro, Brandon Semenuk, Cam McCaul, Danny Macaskill, Gee Atherton, Graham Aggasiz, Matt Hunter, Rene Wildhaber and Thomas Vanderham.
It will have a mix of established pros, up-and-comers and local (B.C.) riders, with Adam Billinghurst, Darren Berrecloth, Rachel Atherton, Ryan Howard and Steve Smith also appearing in the film.
The film will be playing at the Golden Cinema on Saturday June 16. Doors open at 9 p.m., and tickets will be $10 at the door, $9 for Golden Cycling Club members.
“Make a day out of it by sprucing up those bike trails you love,” said Coles. “The Golden Cycling Club will be holding its annual Trail Maintenance Day on June 16. Meet up at Reflection lake at 9 a.m. to help maintain the Mount 7 Trails. Tools will be provided.”
