Divided – a film about Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter’s emotional Tour Divide. Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter’s Tour Divide race in the summer of 2017 is now a documentary – the cycling route that became less of a race, and more of something deeper: a journey to a lasting friendship.
The route follows the Continental Divide down the spine of the USA, and covers 2,745 miles – more than three times the length of the UK, and with just under 20 Everests’ worth of climbing to boot. The rules are simple: eat and sleep when you like, but the clock never stops. Follow the exact route. Remain completely self-supported. And if that’s not enough of a challenge, racers have to cope with bears, lightning storms, snow and snakes.
Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter self-filmed the whole way on a mobile phone and a Go-Pro and Divided is the story of their adventure. It’s not a straightforward one. None of the best stories are.
PLEASE RSVP IF YOU THINK YOU CAN COME SO WE CAN GET AN IDEA OF HOW MANY PANCAKES TO PROVIDE.
