Last Summer, Kathy and Pat had the awesome opportunity of guiding a film crew from Clam Gulch, AK to Homer, Alaska along the beach at low tide. It was 3 days and 2 nights of PURE FAT bike FUN! This was the FINAL leg of the film REVEAL THE PATH presented by Salsa Cycles: http://revealthepath.com/
Homer has a healthy fat bike community, modestly claiming the best fat biking terrain in the world! It’s true; Kachemak Bay tides are some of the most extreme with an average mean range of over fifteen feet. To the best of their knowledge, Pat Irwin and Kathy Sarns Irwin were the first people to ride the entire shoreline between Hope and Homer on their bikes. They chronicled their epic journey here, be sure to check out the awesome pics (complete with Free Spirit Bike Jerseys of course) and amazing adventures from 2005:
If you’re looking for an unusual, active, unforgettable vacation, consider the Homer Fat Bike Festival this winter. Last year’s ride was a smashing success, and we’re sure we’ll have a great turnout again for 2013:
Anyhow back to the movie – we’re stoked because there’s finally an Alaskan screening of Reveal the Path next month in Anchorage. It’s been playing all summer across the country to great reviews and really enthusiastic audiences. The film is an inspiring adventure piece filmed in some of the most remote parts of the planet. It features Matthew Lee & Kurt Refsnider (of Tour Divide race fame) but focuses more on the humanistic and even spiritual side of cycling.
Pat and Kathy are absolutely available for more paid vacations with film crews by the way. Send any and all inquiries via Free Spirit Wear.
