Professional mountain biker Lee Craigie began riding her bike as a means to escape the pressures of society. As her passion grew it turned into an obsession, and she began training to compete competitively at the national level. After a while, competing at an elite level turned the sport she loved into something else entirely, and now she's an adventurer and helps people pedal through their problems. Craigie says, “My hope is that people watching this film will think 'that's the freedom I want' or 'I remember those feelings that bikes can bring' and be inspired to get outside and start their own adventure.” Find more from Craigie on Twitter and Sustrans on their website.
