Berms, Jumps, Stairs? Tackle San Francisco by MTB in ‘Slay the Bay’

This just in: Hans Rey can still shred. Watch him tear up the Bay Area, urban MTB style, in ‘Slay the Bay.’

Encounters with the coolest locations and figures throughout MTB history keep this moderate-length documentary fresh. So do Brett Tippie’s adorable, cheesy jokes (depending on your definition of fresh, anyway).

Ride with Hans from the birthplace of mountain biking in Marin County all the way to the future of the sport with Junior Downhill World Champion Jackson Goldstone. Along the way, legends like Joe Breeze, Charlie Kelly, and Otis Guy join in the fun.

Learn about a few under-the-radar Bay Area MTB spots, and get ready for a surprise visit from a zany, famous extraterrestrial theorist.

Bathed in sunshine and awash in quirky culture, it doesn’t get any more San Francisco than “Slay the Bay.”
