Won't Back Down 

Steve Peat just loves racing his bike. And Won't Back Down is a love story, chronicling the veteran downhill mountain bike racer's love affair with the sport—and all the ups and downs, victories, losses and struggles. (Hey, its like a real relationship!). Yes, the film has plenty of footage showing Peat successfully navigating some pretty narrow-as-the-eye-of-a-needle trails and, yes, just as much footage of him biting it. More than that, though, the film showcases Peat, a tall, blond-haired Brit, reflecting on why he's kept at the sport for so long. As well, other luminaries of the sport show up to lend a bit of historical perspective on downhill racing. Won't Back Down is being presented by the Central Oregon Trail Alliance and Pine Mountain Sports.

Thurs., April 17, 9 pm. McMenamins Old St. Francis, 700 NW Bond St. Free.
