Boulder, Colo. (March 15, 2024) – RITUAL Mountain Bike Film Tour, a nationwide film tour kicking off at the iconic Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C., on April 24, is a 50 stop big screen celebration of the human spirit that defines the sport of mountain biking with unforgettable film-going experiences.  


The film series highlights incredible athletes and creative filmmakers with engaging storylines and stunning cinematography; bringing riders together in mountain biking’s greatest cities and venues. Anchored with big-time sponsor giveaways, live music and highfives abound, RITUAL is locked-and-loaded to host this year’s hottest mix of soon-to-be-released films and recent classics never before seen on the big screen.


"There is amazing work being created every year that captures the creativity, adventure and just straight up pure fun of riding. But so much gets lost watching on your phone or laptop. We think the best way to experience these films is on the big screen, cheering the action with hundreds of fellow mountain bikers.  So we’re stoked to be a part of this year’s tour.” said Ian Dunn, co-founder and executive producer at Anthill Films. Anthill is premiering an action packed film in every stop of the RITUAL tour.
