In this contemplative vid, two middle-aged mountain bikers reflect on what it means to keep shredding as they look toward their twilight years.
No matter how old you are and how long you’ve been riding — the process of facing fear remains the same.
That’s one of the lessons in this endearing little film from Hallingdal Rides. It follows Emil Carlson and Svenn Fjeldheim, the first a clinical psychologist who rides downhill for fun, and the second a former Norwegian national champ.
But they’ve both been riding mountain bikes for more than 3 decades. They’re also both nearing 50 years old. As they soar down gorgeous Norway trails together, they also discuss the prospect of getting older — and what that means for an adventurous life.
