Documentary about mountain biking showing at Mesa Theater in Grand Junction

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - You don't have to be a cyclist to enjoy Denver filmmaker Mike Dion's new film "Reveal the Path," in which four men ride their bicycles through parts of Scotland, Nepal, Morocco and Alaska.Filmed across four continents over the course of 35 days, "Reveal the Path" features ultra endurance bicyclists Matthew Lee and Kurt Refsnider (from the film "Ride the Divide").Lee and Refsnider join Dion and Hunter Weeks as they explore unique landscapes and meet people of different cultures who lead "modest yet seemingly fulfilling lives."Dion's first film, "Ride the Divide," is about the world's toughest mountain bike race in the world. "'Ride the Divide' is still booking venues," said Gretchen Reist of Off the Grid films."That film seemed to motivate, inspire a lot of people," Dion said. "We took that idea of inspiration, started brainstorming, and asked, 'What could we do next?'"The bike is a "tool, or metaphor to explore life to the fullest - to get out there and see the world," Dion said.Reist is helping promote the new film, "Reveal the Path," with a showing in Grand Junction Thursday, Oct. 18, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St."It's family friendly, and just one hour and 10 minutes," Reist said.The filmmakers will attend the film screening and will visit with people in the lobby. Tickets are $11 in advance at www.mesatheater.com, and $13 at the door.For more information visit www.revealthepath.com and watch the trailer at http://vimeo.com/37744449.
