This is the 10th Anniversary celebration of the sold-out world premiere of the film “Changing Gears: Flagstaff and the Mountain Bike.” The humorous documentary captures Flagstaff’s role in the creation and evolution of the Mountain Bike (MTB). Many folks think of Marine County or Crested Butte as birth places of the MTB, but Flagstaff was “right there with them.” While the historic 1982 Snowbowl Race is central to this film, many passionate voices and colorful tangents tell the unique story of how mountain bikes are part of Flagstaff’s life cycle. Early local pioneers and recent heroes (such as the Sykes Brothers, Major Edward A. Weed, Elson and Mark Miles, Cosmic Ray, Joe Murray, Louella Holter, Ken Lane) prove why Flag continues to be a peak performer on the map of mountain biking after more than 100 years. Other short ShotByGunn films and dedications will open the evening.
This film screening is benefit event for Flagstaff Family Food Center.
