Come Join Us for “Reveal The Path”

Reveal The PathAn adventure cycling documentary coming to Bangor on April 3

 “Reveal The Path,” a visually stunning adventure documentary that will ignite the dreamer in everyone, will be coming to Bangor at the Penobscot Theatre on Wednesday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Penobscot Region chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association.

 “Reveal The Path” is the followup 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, 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.

RTP Alaska Mike Hunter“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 $11 and are available at www.imathlete.com/events/revealthepath. The Penobscot Theatre is located at The Bangor Opera House, 131 Main St. in Bangor. Tickets the day of the show will be $15 at the door. Tickets for children under 12 are just $6 but to realize the savings tickets must be purchased at the door the night of the show.

Women's ride this week in City Forest so we can enjoy Chris' trail before it is closed. We will meet at the bottom of Kittridge rd: all the way to the end. 5pm Wednesday ...

Just wanted riders to know that we are in contact with Phillip Keyes of NEMBA concerning the BLT trail closure, part of the reason we became a NEMBA chapter was for support in matters such as these. In the meantime, please let BLT know your concerns and it would be helpful if you let us know that you have contacted them. That way we have some idea of the support out there. Thanks for you patience and support. And thanks for clearing the trails even after we found out about the closure. Class Act! ...

The Bad News: The BLT board has voted to close Chris's trail. At our last meeting we had asked to be included in these discussions and trail closing decisions. We were not included nor told about this decision until today. At this time the trail is still open, so if you love this trail there is a little time before BLT brings out the trail closing chainsaw. Things you can do:
Contact them via Facebook or their website and let them your concerns and ask the board to reconsider. They can vote again if they realize that this is a popular trail. Also let them know if you are a member or if you make donations to them. You might also mention if you plan to ride or donate to their Pedal the Penobscot ride. In the meantime, get out there and ride!
...

The good news: 25 mountain bikers showed up to help clear branches on the Walden Parke Preserve Trails. And mission accomplished, those pesky eye gouging branches are gone! Trails are dry and fast, so get on out there! ...

Tools of choice for today's Trail Day at Walden Parke. Did I mention the free squash drawing? All participants qualify! ...
