Friday, November 10th, Napa Valley Film Festival Special Event: mountain bike ride, lunch and screening of Blood Road
Join Rebecca Rusch, 7x World Champion in sports ranging from adventure racing to whitewater rafting to 24-hour solo mountain biking, author, activist, and filmmaker for a bike ride, lunch and screening of her documentary Blood Road.
About the film:
Although she is used to pushing her body to its limit, nothing could prepare ultra-endurance mountain biker Rebecca Rusch for the emotional journey she took in 2015 when she pedaled 1200 miles of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in search of the site where her father's, a US Air Force pilot, plane crashed during the Vietnam War. (More details on film: http://www.bloodroadfilm.com/)
As part of the 2017, Napa Valley Film Festival (NapaFilmFest.org), we are thrilled to be able to have Rebecca with us - to ride, dine and talk about her journey in creating this powerful documentary.
Friday, November 10th.
