There will be a screening of the Ride the Divide film this week at Madcap Theaters in Tempe.

Ride the Divide is an award-winning feature film 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.

So my plan is to race the Tour Divide in 2013. But with Matt and I not being selected for Trans Iowa this  past spring, step one is to race Trans Wisconsin next summer. I guess then we’ll decide whether or not this transcontinental dream could become a reality.
