Filmmaker Mike Dion On The Making Of Reveal The Path


Mike Dion's first feature-length film, Ride The Divide, followed three cyclists on the inaugural Tour Divide, a 2,700-mile self-supported bikepacking race along the Continental Divide from Banff, Canada to Antelopes Wells, New Mexico, a dusty crossing on the Mexico border. Even the most jaded couldn't watch the movie, which won best adventure film at the Vail Film Festival, without being inspired to get out and ride. In his latest film, Reveal The Path, Dion follows Tour Divide founder and record-holder Matthew Lee and 2011 race winner Kurt Refsnider on a 36-day vagabonding bike trip in some of the world's biggest and most stunning mountain locales. Ahead of the film's upcoming release, Dion talked to me about bikepacking, filmmaking, and his own path to fulfillment.
