ADVENTURE BY BIKE®

Reveal The Path

Here at Salsa, we talk a lot about the power of the bicycle. Not the type of power you apply to the drivetrain with each pedal stroke, but the power that a bicycle can bring to your life.

Personally, the bicycle has played a profound role in making me who I am today. It has presented rich experiences across the globe and helped me form very dear life-long friendships. It has allowed me to make a living in this world and help provide for my family. It has lifted my spirits but also reminded me of my mortality. Indeed, the bicycle has at times been my salvation. And yes, there have probably been a few times where it has been my curse.

In the coming months many of us at Salsa are going to share our stories with you. And we are going to ask you to share yours with us.

Each of us are on a path. We have taken different steps to get where we are today, and we'll face choices in the future that may bring us together, or take us apart.

Two years ago, Jason Boucher and I crossed paths with Mike Dion and Hunter Weeks at the Sea Otter Classic bike festival. They had just released their new film Ride The Divide. While we didn't meet for very long, we did stay in touch. I guess you could say we'd gotten onto the same path.

Salsa is proud to be the presenting sponsor for their follow-up film Reveal The Path. Today, I'm pleased to share the trailer with you here.

   

Go to the Reveal The Path website for more information on the film, including the theatrical tour schedule and the like.

Minnesota folks...save the date! May 31st!

The world premier of Reveal The Path will take place on May 31st at the Riverview Theatre here in Minneapolis. We look forward to an incredibly fun-filled and rewarding night!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

The trailer alone is very inspiring.  I am anxiously awaiting the release of this movie.  This may just be the big push I need.

Dammit.  And this is why I’ll have to have a Fargo, too.  You guys are killing me!!

I like this a lot.  SALSA, sponsor MANY more films like this one!  I love watching bike films but most are gravity related (which is still cool) and I don’t ride like that any more.  I would love more adventure-inspiring films!  They could even be shorties, like 30-45 minutes long.  Perhaps they just follow a couple of riders on a 2-day bikepacking trip.  Anything!
Cheers

strange that you are the only person so far getitng this bug? perhaps you have two catablog folders in your plugins folder or you have declared a function somewhere in your theme or in one of your other plugins that has the same name. could you try activating the plugin with the twentyten theme enabled and no other plugins activated and see if it works. thanks.

The film will be in Denver this Friday, and a few of my cycling buddies are thinking of riding over with our kids….ages 6-12.  The trailer looks great, but my question is: is there anything in the film that would be inappropriate for my mountain-biking-adventurous-6 year old daughter?  I think she’d be completely inspired by the film…but I just want to know what to expect…..

Darren, I don’t want to give away what happens in the film but I believe it is appropriate. There is one scene that shows ‘where food really comes from’ if you get my drift…which frankly, is probably a good thing to have your child understand. Hope that helps.
