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.

Hey Everyone,

Hope this finds you just back from a ride or getting ready for a ride (I hope you are not riding and trying to read this at the same time). The trails are riding well and many thanks to the secret and (not so secret) trail fairies who are keeping the trails in great shape.

Now for the bad news: if you think you have ridden every single trail in the area this season, well, you have not. In fact no one has been able to ride the dearly beloved B&L Boulevard trail (trail 5 on the attached map, surprise! a map is now available hee-hee) that is currently buried beneath recent logging debris. You may know this trail as The-single-track-that-goes-behind-the-transfer-station-trail on your way to or from La Bree's. So a trail day is in order, and the mission is: recover the B&L Boulevard. This is basically a pick up sticks, (some large, some small) and find the trail underneath operation. Hand saws, gloves, and rakes are the tools of choice. No power tools please. We'd like to keep all of our fingers and toes thank-you very much.

So here is the Where, When and What to Bring:

When: Wednesday, August 27th, 5:30 pm to7:30 pm, (yup, an after work trail day)

Where: you can meet us in one of two places. If you have a rake and or prefer to walk in you should park in the parking lot on Gilman Falls Ave. across from LaBree's (see map, love being able to say this!) and follow Spring Rd. to the trail heads. If you want to ride in, meet us in the parking lot of the Old Town elementary school on Stillwater Ave. (whoops, school is not on map, hence the word DRAFT) and we will have a guide expert in finding all trails-a-midst-many there to lead riders to the trail. Both entrances to the trail have been obnoxiously marked with 4 (not 3) colors of flagging. You might notice this if you are out riding this week.

What to Bring: Hand saws, gloves, rakes, and a strong back...

And then there is the Bangor City Forest.......

PR NEMBA is working with Bangor Recreation to create a beginner trail out of not so beginner trails in the City Forest. This is a search and destroy mission, we will take out rocks and roots on selected sections of trail that have made many of us (or just me) cry. And after we are done there will be a sweet little single track that will lure innocent, unsuspecting souls (i.e. beginners) into the sport we all love called mountain biking.

Where, When, and What to Bring:

When: Wednesday, September 10th, 5:30-7:30 pm (yup, another after work trail day)

Where: We will meet in the Tripp Drive parking lot of the Bangor City Forest.

What to Bring: Anything that can be used to remove rocks and roots and maybe fill in holes. Hand saws, loppers, crow bars, maybe shovels, are all useful. The PR NEMBA tools will also be available, so if you have always wanted to use a polaski, rogue hoe or rock bar, here is your chance.

And as always, if you are not a member already here is how to become one: www.nemba.org/join

Feel free to forward this e-mail to to other fans of the B&L Boulevard or to someone who would like to take out their frustrations on rocks and roots.

If you no longer wish to be harassed by these e-mails, let me know......any fine craft beer will get you off the list.

Oh yeah, and you can find the nifty new Marsh Island Trail maps here: pr.nemba.org/?page_id=105

and the nifty new Dedham Trail map here: pr.nemba.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Dedham-Trails-20140801-2.pdf

TTFN, Keep on Ridin', and see you at the trail days......
