Reveal the Path to premiere Monday
Reveal the Path takes moviegoers on a 36-day journey with three mountain bike enthusiasts to some of the most visually stunning corners of the globe, including Alaska's rugged coastal beaches.
Two years ago, Ride the Divide spent one night at the Peterborough Community Theater.
The documentary film about a group of three mountain bike riders attempting to pedal the 2,700 miles along the Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico played to an almost full house.
On Monday at 7 p.m., the follow up film, Reveal the Path, will make its one and only appearance at the Peterborough Community Theater. The event is co-sponsored by the Monadnock Cycling Club and is being brought to Peterborough by adventure film promoter Garry Harrington.
Harrington, who grew up in Bellows Falls, Vt. and lived in Dublin for a short time, saw the enthusiasm the first film brought and wanted to make sure that area cycling enthusiasts had a chance to see the follow up.
“It was a great turnout,” said Harrington. “So we’re bringing the sequel back.”
Reveal the Path, which premiered in May, will take moviegoers on a 36-day bike journey around the world to some of the most breathtaking surroundings through the experiences of three ultra-endurance riders, including director Mike Dion.
“I think anyone with the least bit of wanderlust will want to see this movie,” said Harrington.
Filmed on four continents, Reveal the Path shows the visually stunning scenes of Europe’s snow-capped mountains, Scotland’s lush valleys, Alaska’s rugged coastal beaches, Nepal’s elevated wonders and Morocco’s high desert landscapes.
“It’s a very cinematic film,” said Harrington. “You’re going to see some cool places. I particularly like the Alaska footage.”
During the documentary, riders connect with locals along their journey and learn about what life is like in that corner of the world. Along the way Dion, along with world class mountain bikers Matthew Lee and Kurt Refsnider, begin to question what it means to live an inspired life.
“It asks you to take stock of your own life,” said Harrington.
Advanced tickets may be purchased for $10 at www.imathlete.com/events/revealthepath or for $12 at the door.
The film will be shown at 7 p.m. Following its trip to Peterborough, Reveal the Path will be shown in Hartford, Conn. on Tuesday, Providence, RI on Wednesday and Boston on Thursday.
“That’s the way we are every where we go,” said Harrington of the one night stay.
“I connected with them for this one,” said Harrington. “We try to find an on the ground sponsor at each location.”
