    Thursday Jan 16th, 8pm at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend

    COTA Movie Night @ McMenamins kicks off 2020 with Brett Reeder in One At A Time.

    Brett Rheeder is an athlete who’s hard to read. Straying from the limelight to stay committed to his riding, Rheeder rarely lets the outside world into the inner workings of his brain.

    COTA Movie Night @ McMenamins presents Divided. Thursday Nov 21st at McMenamins. More INFO HERE.

    Fear of failure can stop all sorts of adventures before they even start, but what if failing is the best part? In 2017, the female duo of Rickie Cotter and Lee Craigie raced the Tour Divide together, a 2745 mile self-supported mountain bike race from Canada to the Mexican border. Shot entirely using a Go Pro and an iPhone, this is a heart-warming and funny documentary about the journey of two friends.
