Filmmaker Bio:

Bailey Beltramo lives in Canterbury, NH and works as a content creator and video producer for Highland Mountain Bike Park. Nate LaTourette is a Concord, NH native and divides his time between his day work as an environmental engineer and being outdoors — most often on a bike or skis. Austin Wilder is a NH native as well but is currently based out of Boston, MA as a full-time videographer specializing in branding and events.

Three thoughts from the filmmaker:

This project started with a simple text and idea to Nate gauging his interest in filming a bike video — we had no knowledge of Ry’s legacy and impact on the local community as a citizen and as a cyclist. It was through a series of connections and the sharing of stories that the project morphed into something much more.
This was a project of firsts: the first time I tried specifically filling a directorial role or attempted a mountain bike specific film, the first time Austin filmed mountain biking, the first time the three of us worked together, more than likely the first time Ry’s Way had ever been the subject of a film, Nate’s first time on a bike… (just kidding!!). But it came out alright!
