Cycle Works and Moose’s Tooth, independent and local bike shop and outdoor’s fitter, bring you the “Ride The Divide” film! Come and join us for this amazing film!
“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 theRocky 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 ﬁrst 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 reﬂect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest.
Cycle Works and Moose’s Tooth will be donating a portion of the proceeds to GPTN, (Great Plains Trail Network) to help keep our beautiful city bicycle friendly and benefit our wonderful local trails and ones for the future!
