Long have mountain bikers ripped up hills, traversed back roads and jumped fallen logs, but never have these events been captured so effectively. Life Cycles, a Stance Film in association with Shimano, Scott Bicycles and pinkbike.com is an artistic masterpiece, offering every viewer a chance to feel the heart and soul of dirt-riding.

Life Cycles offers the cycling community a new view of mountain biking through time-lapse photography and slow motion, emphasizing the adrenaline associated with taking on nature in its purest form. While riders fly through the seasons, the vivid colors and scenery changes are captured on film. From the early spring greens to the winter golds and whites, senses come alive inspiring riders of all forms to appreciate the outdoors from behind handlebars.

According to our own Kat Sweet, "You don't have to be a mountain biker to appreciate this film. The cinematography is amazing."

This special film showing is a benefit for the Washington High School Mountain Bike League & Cascade Bicycle Club youth programs. We will also be featuring an auction and drawing tonight for many great items, all to benefit programs that get high school students out riding the trails.

About the Washington High School Mountain Bike League

The Washington High School Mountain Bike League was founded in 2010 to promote personal development and teamwork through bicycle racing, and encourages the formation of teams at public and private high schools. With the cooperation of local race promoters and our sponsors, the League will organize a first-class series of races to commence in 2011, designed for high school aged student-athletes. The League makes high school racing the easiest route for youth to get involved in the challenging and exciting world of competitive cycling.
The league is funded primarily by individual donors who see the value of encouraging our youth to participate in this healthy life-long sport. With the help of your donation, we will continue to provide the best and safest cycling programs for young athletes in our high schools.
