Ride The Divide 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. The film 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 cross- ing on the Mexican border at Antelope Wells. passing Silver City on the way. There's Mike. a 40-year-old family manwho uses this chal- lenge to chart a new course in life: Mary, the rst female rider to race this route: and. of course. Mat- thew. who's competing for his fifth time. As they set out. they will attempt to accomplish what at the time fewer than 40 people have been able to. Over the course of a few weeks, they'll at- tempt to climb over 200,000 ver- tical feet along the backbone of the Rocky Mountains. They'll experience mental breakdowns, treacherous snow. hellacious blisters, and total fa- tigue. Above all. they'll race with no support - at times in total iso- lation. The tests of endurance and the accomplished moments throughout Ride the Divide prompt us to reect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest.
