One note on ticket sales. Tickets purchased online cost $5 plus a $1.26 surcharge. Tickets at the door will cost $10. The only way to guarantee you'll have a seat for the film is to purchase a ticket online beforehand. We hope to see out our showing of this film.

Where is the money going? Proceeds from our showing will go to 2011 Tour Divide racer Erik Mathy's charity, One Gear, One Cause. Erik will be riding a singlespeed Salsa Fargo during the 2011 event.

Haven't yet heard of Ride The Divide movie?


Ride The Divide is an inspiring journey about the world’s toughest mountain bike race, which traverses over 2700 miles along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains. The film weaves the story of three characters’ experiences with immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal from Banff, Canada to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border.

Mike, a 40-year old family man who uses this challenge to chart a new course in life; Matthew, a leader in extreme endurance racing who’s competing for his 5th time; and Mary, the ?rst female rider to race this route, will set out to accomplish what very few have been able to. Over the course of a few weeks they’ll attempt to climb over 200,000 vertical feet over the Rocky Mountains. That’s the equivalent of ascending Mount Everest from sea level seven times.

They’ll experience mental breakdowns, treacherous snow, hellacious blisters, and total fatigue. Above all, they’ll race with no support – at times in total isolation.

The tests of endurance and the accomplished moments throughout Ride the Divide prompt us to re?ect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest.

Check out the trailer below. It'll whet your appetite. More to come on this in the next three weeks! And please help spread the word about this folks. We'd love to fill the theater.

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.
