A short mountain bike film, shot in Andalucía, Spain
This was my first experiment with filmmaking - shot on my new Canon 60D while visiting my brother in spain.
Credit goes to the riders, Pete and my brother Mark, for putting up with my sloppy directorial technique.
Also a big thanks to everyone else at Joyriders for a wonderful stay!
And finally, a huge amount of credit is also due to Ben Howard for the soundtrack - Ben is an up and coming musician from Devon, UK. My brothers and I are all huge fans of his music and I hope this video helps to spread the word – if you like what you hear, his music is available on iTunes – download it now!
Set amidst the dramatic hills and calm waters of the UK's Lake District, From Fell To Forest is a short film that takes us on an epic journey as Sam Flanagan, Ben Whitehead and Matt Wight become immersed in a land with no shortage of amazing trail riding. This is mountain biking.
Enjoy the film and happy trails!
Filmed and Edited by Sam Needham

Like every other season, fall is pretty magical in the Colorado high country. By the end of summer, cool winds are already moving over the mountains and the peaks are getting dusted with snow. The aspens shed their leaves, covering the trails in red and gold, and morning frosts dampen the dry summer dirt. Add it all together, and it means several weeks of absolutely prime singletrack—sticky, colorful, and emptied of the summertime foot traffic. It was in search of those conditions that we headed into the mountains with our SB66s and a checklist of our favorite trails.
