Ride the Divide is a documentary produced by Hunter Weeks and Mike Dion, both of Colorado, but the soundtrack provides a little touch of Missoula. Local musician Jon Schumaker wrote the instrumental "Off in the Woods" and it's included in the film.
Keep an ear out for it when you check out the documentary tonight at the Wilma Theatre. The film chronicles several Tour Divide bicycle racers as they pedal their way down the Continental Divide from Banff, Alberta, to the New Mexico/Mexico border in a race that covers 2,745 miles of off-road terrain and 200,000 feet of climbing.
Ride the Divide screens at the Wilma Theatre tonight, Tuesday, June 15, at 7:30 PM. $10, with live music and a Q&A session included. Visit ridethedividemovie.com.
