If you’re looking for a dose of inspiration and a look at the transformative power of outdoor sports, than look no further than this video. It’s brought to us by Patagonia, Teton Gravity Research, and Freehub Magazine and it tells the dale of Downieville, CA.
As with many small towns, Downieville was struggling to survive as the mining industry packed up and went away. But thanks to some engaged locals, a willingness to preserve the local trails, and a concerted effort to bring riders into the area, it has now become a mountain biking mecca. Truly a wonderful story all around.
