At the age of 16, many American kids trade in two wheels for four. Trusty steeds that once gave them freedom to explore on weekends now collect dust in the garage. For a growing number of high school students in Northern California, however, two wheels don’t get dusty, they get dirty. Their lives continue to revolve around weekend rides, but now those rides have a finish line. These are the student athletes of the NorCal High School Cycling League. This is Singletrack High.
The NorCal League is excited to partner with Pedal Born Pictures, Dirt Rag Magazine, the Oakland Composite High School Mountain Bike Team for this special Oakland screening of Singletrack High. The hour-long documentary follows six student athletes through the 2012 season the NorCal League, exploring the importance of keeping kids outdoors on bikes.
Co-director brothers Jacob and Isaac Seigel-Boettner will be joined by reigning World Downhill Champion Greg Minaar for a post-screening Q&A.
All ticket sales help support the NorCal League's effort to grow the sport of high school mountain biking further across Northern California. A portion will also go to support the Oakland Composite Team's goal of bringing high school mountain bike racing to the greater Oakland Area.
Singletrack High was funded by Specialized Bicycle Components to help grow the high school mountain bike racing movement nationwide. Additional production support was provided by Sunnyvale VW and GoPro.
