Well…that’s what Brian Vernor believes, so that is what I believe!
Here’s what Brian has to say about the film…
Hi friends, This has been a long time coming. I have held this secret for a long time and at this point I think there is no way to share this radical film other than to simply let it fly on the internet. In early 2010 I showed this film to multiple cycling media outlets in an effort to re-release the film, or to do an in depth profile on the man that as far as I know has made the first mountain bike film. the FIRST. This is a film. It is not a bunch of scrappy footage. Wolf Ruck made something beautiful and important, and then he moved on and made other films about other subjects. He was very humble when I approached him about his film FREEWHEELIN. He was even surprised anybody cared. What a shock to see this film for me. Besides the historical importance, the great vibe he transmits from the scene as it was back then, jamming soundtrack he co-ordinated, Wolf Ruck can likely be credited with the first urban POV shot in all of cycling. Plenty of people have made names for themselves simply from that shot alone. As a filmmaker I am greatly inspired by this whole film. Freewheelin is free. Please share.
YES! YES! YES!
