Blackburn Design: RIVER

River, a documentary/exploration of Brian's bike-fishing journey, serves as the first chapter of Blackburn Design's film project that examines cycle travellers’ relationships with the world’s most abundant resource: water...

The best Steelhead fishing happens to be in the dead of winter – ideal for cycle touring – so Brian faced nearly constant rain, snow and ice (check out his winter mitts) for a chance to spend but a moment with one of these elusive creatures.  Along the way, he found some beautiful quiet moments and the simple joys that life on a bike can bring, which comes across really nicely in the film…

Public access to rivers and streams is really important. As Ohlen states in the film, “if we ever lost that access or lost our public lands, it would be the death of the West.” Blackburn has partnered with Backcountry Hunters & Anglers to help protect public river access. Visit the Stream Access Pledge for more information…

We’ll post the next chapter in Blackburn’s Water Cycle Series as and when released…

Dominic Gill of Encompass Films – In 2006 Dominic bought a tandem bicycle, a heavy video camera and a plane ticket to the northern tip of Alaska. From there he spent two years pedaling south, inviting random strangers to join him on his tandem as he documented the journey on video. In 2009 he helped create an award winning one hour special about his journey entitled ‘Take A Seat’, and subsequently wrote a book of the same title.
