Event Details

Every day of the year, we at BikeArlington spend our time making it easy for Arlingtonians to get around by bike. One of these efforts includes our weekly Two Wheel Tuesdays program which has, this year alone, enlightened almost 100 people on biking in Arlington. To celebrate our success, and to thank everyone who rides their bike or has even thought about riding their bike, we’d like to invite all of you to a free movie screening of the reknowned documentary “Ride the Divide”.  Don't worry - we'll take care of the popcorn (and drinks)!!


"Ride The Divide is an inspiring journey about the world’s toughest mountain bike race, which traverses over 2700 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 first 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. That’s the equivalent of ascending Mount Everest from sea level seven times. 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. The tests of endurance and the accomplished moments throughout Ride the Divide prompt us to reflect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest."
