Film features Sacramento officer-led youth bike team

An upcoming showing of a film that features participants in the Sacramento Police Activities League bike program for youth is also a fundraiser for the local effort to acquaint at-risk young people with the merits of mountain bike cycling.

The documentary, Singletrack High, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center, 6715 Gloria Drive. The film follows high school students through the 2012 mountain bike racing season in the NorCal High School Cycling League.

The Sacramento PAL program team is featured in the film. The team is coached by police officer volunteers and works primarily with at-risk youth.

Filmmaker Jacob Seigel-Boettner, who produced the film with his brother Isaac, said the Sacramento Police Activities League High School Mountain Biking Program was an inspiration to the filmmakers.

"The officers and student-athletes in this program are a testament to the huge positive impact that exploring outdoors via pedal-power can have, regardless of one's socio-economic background,' said Jacob Seigel-Boettner.
