Epicenter Cycling is proud to host the Santa Cruz premiere of the new Anthill Films mountain biking film Return to Earth at the Rio Theatre on Friday, June 21, 2019 with proceeds benefiting Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) and Monterey Off-Road Cycling Association (MORCA).

At Epicenter Cycling, we’re dedicated to our community. We’re proud to present this premiere as a fundraiser for two outstanding non-profit organizations in our region that work hard for mountain bikers and other trail users.

100% of the proceeds from this event will be split between Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC) and Monterey Off-Road Cycling Association (MORCA) for their trail building and maintenance efforts.

About Return to Earth

Return to Earth, a cinematic journey into the bike’s power to immerse us in the present moment.

Time is either spent wisely or it is just spent. Second after second; minute after minute; moment after moment ... they’re all there for the taking. All you need is a simple machine that that defies boundaries and knows no limits.

This is Return to Earth, the ninth feature from award-winning adventure filmmakers Anthill Films. A cinematic journey that will immediately transport you into that feeling of total immersion you get on a bike ride. Fly through the lush coastal jungles of Oahu. Feel the dust from Utah’s otherworldly landscapes. Lose yourself in the untouched mountains of Patagonia.

Connected by true to life examples set by some of the sport’s biggest athletes, unsung shredders and up-and-coming youth, Return to Earth proves that when we lose track of time, we can make the most of it.
