The Rider & The Wolf Highlights Missing Mountain Biker

Grit & Thistle Film recently released a feature documentary shot in Colorado. The Rider & The Wolf tells the story of mountain bike pioneer Mike Rust, the hall of fame cyclist who disappeared without a trace in Colorado in 2009.

"We've been seeing a great amount of interest in the film, not just from cyclists, but from people interested in mysteries of the American West," says Nathan Ward who directed and DP'd the film. "People want to know what happened to Mike the Bike." 

The doc premiered at Telluride Mountainfilm and will also be screening at the Denver Film Festival and the Crested Butte Film Festival. The film has been covered by nearly every cycling/adventure magazine in North America including Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Bike, Adventure Cyclist and Colorado Public Radio.
