La Paz Chattanooga and Southeast Youth Corps will present the film Reveal the Path to raise funds and awareness for La Paz’s upcoming after-school mountain bike program on Oct. 11.
Reveal the Path, a Salsa Bikes production, is “a genre-defying adventure film that contemplates what it means to live an inspired life using the bicycle as a mechanism to explore, dream and discover.” Regions explored include Scotland’s valleys, Europe’s snow-capped mountains, Morocco’s high desert landscapes, Nepal’s rural countryside and Alaska’s rugged coastal beaches.
The screening will be held at the Crash Pad, 29 Johnson St., Oct. 11 from 6-9 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door.

The screening of 'Reveal the Path' will launch the first program of La Paz's Southeast Youth Corps. As a soon-to-be chapter of the national organization, Trips for Kids, this annual, five month mountain bike program will serve youth ages 13 to 15, in weekly trail rides and monthly community service projects. Brenna Kenney, La Paz’s Americorps VISTA staff, says that “students who commit to the program will receive thorough education on fundamental bike maintenance techniques, learn trail safety and etiquette, and participate in a wide variety of conservation and community enrichment projects. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will earn their own new or gently used bike.”
Light refreshments will be provided and beer will be available for purchase from the Crash Pad. A silent auction will commence when doors open at 6 p.m., with the film beginning around 6:45 p.m. All proceeds from the auction and ticket revenue will go directly to the mountain bike program.
This will be an outdoor event, so please come prepared for fall weather.
For information regarding the event, contact Brenna Kenney at 624-8414, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This screening was made possible by the support of Lynskey Performance, Trailhead Bicycle Co., and Owens Cyclery.
