A bike marathon from Fort Langley to the Sacred Headwaters of BC that aims to generate $25,000 to financially and socially support the Klabona Keepers.
Beyond Boarding’s Summer 2014 Bike Tour - Cycle to the Sacred - is a bike marathon from Fort Langley to the Sacred Headwaters that aims to generate financial and social support for a group of land defenders, the Klabona Keepers, in the Sacred Headwaters of British Columbia. The tour will take place over the course of two months, from July 13th to the end of August and is tentatively scheduled for 22 stops in British Columbia. Our goals with this tour are to raise $25,000 to stand in solidarity with the Klabona Keepers, to support awareness, education, culture, environment, to bring attention to the beauty that pervades British Columbia.
Beyond Boarding co-founder, Desiree Wallace, and member, Landon Yerex, will be biking the entirety of the route whilst co-founder, Nicole Kilistoff, follows in a support vehicle converted to run on waste cooking oil. They will be raising funds through an online fundraising platform and hosting film screenings of Beyond Boarding’s independent documentary, Northern Grease that features the Klabona Keepers to raise awareness and money along the route. Alongside the fundraising, the team will be documenting stories of indigenous land defenders across the province as well as the landscapes they are protecting through photojournalism and videography.
