An adventure cycling documentary coming to Bellingham on Jan. 29
“Reveal The Path,” a visually stunning adventure documentary that will ignite the dreamer in everyone, will be coming to the Pickford Film Center in Bellingham on Tuesday, January 29 at 6:30 p.m. The event is a benefit for the WMBC.
“Reveal The Path” is the follow-up film from the creators of the wildly popular and award-winning film “Ride The Divide.” The film is an inspirational story of adventure, taking viewers on a 36-day vagabond bike trip to some of the world’s most visually stunning destinations.
Filmed on four continents, “Reveal The Path” features world-class mountain bikers, including Tour Divide founder Matthew Lee the star of “Ride The Divide,” and Kurt Refsnider, 2011 Tour Divide winner.
Sponsored by Salsa Cycles, the full-length feature film explores Europe’s snow-capped mountains, Scotland’s lush valleys, Alaska’s rugged coastal beaches, Nepal’s elevated wonders and Morocco’s high desert landscapes.
Along the way the riders connect with locals who are living modest yet seemingly fulfilling lives, leading the filmmakers to question what it means to live an inspired life – however humble or extravagant.
“This adventure will leave you with an eager desire to chart your own course to faraway lands,” said director Mike Dion, who also co-stars in “Reveal The Path,” as he did in “Ride The Divide.” “Or, simply, you may just want to discover with eyes wide open what is around the next bend.”
Advance tickets to the screening are $13 and are available at www.pickfordcinema.org. The Pickford Film Center is located at 1318 Bay St. in Bellingham. Tickets the day of the show will also be $13 while they last; tickets for Pickford Film Center members are $10.
