During the winter of 2018, 10-year-old Koby Clark rode most of the Baja Divide under his own power, cleanly riding tough sections where the rest of his family pushed their bikes. Koby tells the story of his ride and hints at some of the 'sticky situations' he encountered along this challenging 1700-mile route. The film also showcases the innocence of youth and the richness of the experience while bikepacking as a family in a foreign country.
A film by Dan Clark with narration by Koby Clark.

The Clark Family: Dan, Alice, Koby, and Ava Fei
Cycling has been part of our life since our kids were born. When they were babies, cycling provided us a time-crunched workout between diaper changes. But these were solitary missions, not family adventures. Our cycling took on a new dimension in 2014 when we left our home and jobs and flew to the tip of South America for our first bike trip as a family. During our eight-month ride, north along the Andes of Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia we discovered the freedom that bikes and an open itinerary allow. We experienced the peace and solitude of roads less traveled, strengthened our family bonds, and were welcomed into a larger family of cyclists from around the world - our “Familia Ciclista.”
