“Monte: Can’t stop. Won’t stop” is a new film from Patagonia that follows Monte Cosby as he bridges two worlds: the public-housing projects of Richmond, Virginia, where he grew up and an unexpected path he found by way of mountain biking. The film was just published online this morning, and you can watch it here and find a few behind-the-scenes photos by producer Jess Daddio…

Our friend Jess Daddio’s brainchild film Monte: Can’t stop. Won’t stop was just released on YouTube. Regular readers might recognize it as as we teased a photo from the film premiere a few weeks ago after I visited the campus of Warren Wilson College to see the in-person premiere. Fellow bikepacker and contributor to The Bikepacking Journal Jalen Bazile led the festivities with a bikepacking demonstration followed by the film screening and a Q&A with director Dave Mayers, subject Demonte Cosby, and producer Jess Daddio. It’s an excellent film, so I’m excited to see it released to the public. You can watch it in full below.

Warren Wilson College has more than 25 miles of singletrack on campus, making it easy for Monte and his teammates to get out for a ride.

Everything about Monte Cosby’s life at Warren Wilson College is different than his life in Richmond, Virginia, but the thread that has tied these two seemingly disparate worlds together has been the bike.
