  • The film – Divided – tells the story of an expedition that didn’t quite go to plan, but was all the richer for it. The Tour Divide route follows the Continental Divide down the spine of the USA. It covers a distance more than three times the length of the UK, with just under 20 Everests’ worth of climbing. 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 dodge bears, lightning storms, snow and snakes. Lee and Rickie self-filmed the whole way. This is the story of their adventure. It’s not a straightforward one. None of the best stories are.

    The Adventure Syndicate is a collective of female endurance cyclists whose aim is to increase levels of self-belief and confidence in others (especially in women and girls) by telling inspiring stories, creating an encouraging community, and delivering enabling workshops and training. We do this because we love the way adventuring by bike makes us feel and we passionately believe we are all capable of so much more than we think we are.

    Following the showing of the film, there will be a Question and Answer session with Lee Craigie and Rickie Cotter.
