Film: Ride the Divide
"The world's toughest bike race is not in France," reads the film's poster. Ride the Divide embraces the inspiring stories of three racers who experience the immense mountian beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal 2,711 miles from Banff, Canada, to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border. Over the course of a few weeks, they'll attempt to climb over 200,000 vertical feet along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains. That's the equivalent of ascending Mount Everest from sea level seven times.
Witness the riders' mental breakdowns, treacherous snow, hellacious blisters, total fatigue, little victories and huge accomplishments on Thursday July 29, 8:30pm, at the Nugget Theatre. Tickets are available at the door for $10. The presenting sponsor is Paragon Ski & Sport.
