About Ride The Divide
The world's toughest bike race is not in France.
Pine Mountain Sports brings you an encore screening of Ride The Divide. This inspiring film follows the world's toughest mountain bike race, which traverses more than 2,700 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.
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.
Movie Night at McMenamins raises funds and awareness for Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
