ADVENTURE (LONG FORM) | 127min.
A program of four bikepacking films featuring: The East Texas Showdown, The Atlas Mountain Race, The Day Across Minnesota, and Land's End to John O'Groats. Explore the terrains of Morocco, North America, and the UK by bicycle.
- Cycling enthusiast Karin Laske sets off on an adventure spanning over 800 miles. She travels solo from Land's End to John O'Groats - a journey famously known as END TO END
- THE EAST TEXAS SHOWDOWN is a bikepacking event founded in 2021 by Patrick Farnsworth. The event includes two distance options: the 380-mile SHOWdown or the 280-mile SLOWdown. This film provides a glimpse into the second annual event in 2022 consisting of 94 participants and blazing fast times.
- The Day Across Minnesota is Minnesota’s grueling 240 mile point-to-point gravel race. THE LAST DAMN captures the final race and explores the race's origin and sociocultural impact it has had on gravel cycling.
- The Atlas Mountain Race means navigating 1,200 km of the most rugged and remote roads in Morocco. To win requires riding almost non-stop, night and day, for days on end alone and unsupported. There is no prize, no money, simply the satisfaction that comes from pushing oneself to the limit while exploring the forgotten corners of a beautiful country. Filmmaker Brady Lawrence followed the race documenting everything from a brutal 80 km walk through the high desert with a broken bike, to one racer’s simple joy at realizing they’ll soon eat their first warm meal in days. INTO THE RIFT - THE STORY OF THE ATLAS MOUNTAIN RACE features the sport’s biggest names and first-time, ultra-distance racers alike.
