Ride the Divide

Ride the Divide

Ride the Divide is a movie about a group of  mountain bikers who want to accomplish something that not many people can do! It is an inspiring journey about the world’s toughest mountain bike race, which in the racers travel over 2,700 miles along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains. The film is mainly about the story of three characters’ experiences with large mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal 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 over the Rocky Mountains. That’s the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest from sea level seven times. Mike, a 40-year old 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 do!

    Wow! I am very interested in seeing this movie, Emma. Is it on “Pay Per View”, maybe the Nature channel? I guess I should just get my bike out and start biking around the neighborhood…how difficult would it be to do that 🙂

    It is amazing what people with a passion can accomplish. One of my goals for my students is to help them find something they are passionate about and help them follow it. It would be pretty cool if one of my students decided to do something like this.

    Thanks for an interesting post about a race I never knew of. I agree with Sam. I could never survive such a trek.
