Ride The Divide, an award-winning feature-length documentary about the world’s longest mountain bike race, continues its debut tour when it drops in on Sun Valley on Tuesday, September 28 at the Sun Valley Resort Opera House at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10.
The film chronicles the story of several mountain bikers who attempt the 2,711-mile race named the Tour Divide along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains.
Ride The Divide embraces the inspiring stories of three of the racers who experience the immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal from Banff, Canada, to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border. There’s 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 fifth time; and Mary, the rst female rider to race this route. As they set out, they will attempt 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 along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains.
Ride The Divide will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at the Sun Valley Resort Opera House in Sun Valley. Tickets are available at the door for $10, and will be available in advance for $13 online at www.ridethedividemovie.com/screenings soon.
The presenting sponsors for the event are The Elephant’s Perch in Ketchum, Pete Lane’s Bike Rentals at Sun Valley, and the Wood River Bike Coalition.
