Reveal the Path: An adventure cycling documentary

“Reveal The Path,” a visually stunning adventure documentary that will ignite the dreamer in everyone, will be coming to the Grand Lake Theatre on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. The event is a benefit for the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay.

“Reveal The Path” is the followup film from the creators of the wildly popular and award-winning film “Ride The Divide,” which sold out when it premiered at the Grand Lake two years ago. 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.

“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 $10 and are available at www.imathlete.com/events/revealthepath. The Grand Lake Theatre is located at 3200 Grand Ave. in Oakland. Tickets the day of the show will be $15 at the door.

Created in 1987, the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay (BTCEB) is the second-oldest mountain bike advocacy group in the U.S. and one of the founding chapters of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA). Its mission is to educate cyclists in responsible mountain biking, to advocact for appropriate access and to promote community among trail users so all may fully enjoy and preserve the natural spaces of the East Bay. Its visions for a united trails community where mountain bikers, equestrians and hikers coexist on trails in these open spaces. For more information, go to www.btceb.org.
