Video: THIS is Hill...Ahem, Mountain Biking

Three riders take on breathtaking trails in UK's Lake District

As filmmaker Sam Needham says of this video, “This is mountain biking.”

Okay, so we added the emphasis on, “this.” But there’s no question in our minds that a definitive, emphasized “this” is only what Needham could have meant—because it’s true. From Fell to Forest, set in the UK’s Lake District, manages to capture the essence of mountain biking in just five short minutes. No crazy stunts, no impossible-to-survive falls and (thankfully) not even a beat of dubstep to ramp up the intensity—just riders Sam Flanagan, Ben Whitehead and Matt Wight as they take on the trails in a breathtaking landscape.
