For the love of BIKE! Pedal Fest will be returning to Blue Mountain Resort for a second year to celebrate biking on the Niagara escarpment. New to the three day festival is the return of the East Coast Open Downhill race.  The race was put on hold last year with the expansion of the new downhill trails, but is back in action with an open format encouraging downhillers of all levels of ability to compete. Participants must be 12 years of age or older to sign up.

Marc Landry is a Toronto, Ontario based action sports photographer. Honing his skills on local and World Cup cycling circuits, Marc has since expanded his subject matter to include several outdoor adventure sports. Marc is in his element when surrounded by the energy that top athletes radiate. The relationships he forms with his subjects is apparent in his images and is part of what defines his look. He is most at home in the mountains and his preference for long glass and elaborate lighting setups has become his signature style.

  1. This is good news for mountain biking as a community as a whole. Was disappointed that the open didn’t happen last year… Good to see Blue still has our back.
