For those who can’t make the premieres, Return to Earth will be released on iTunes and Google Play on July 16. However, we encourage all the home viewers to invite the crew around and enjoy the viewing experience with friends!

Also in July, Anthill is partnering with Trailforks, Trek, Shimano and EVOC for the 30-Day Ride Challenge. All of our team at Anthill will be taking on this challenge (even though we’re ineligible for the prizes) and we’re looking forward to seeing as many riders as possible posting their rides.

See you at the show!

 Greenville SC and Raleigh NC, but no Brevard? Don't these guys know where Pisgah is?

 The impetus was on an lbs or imba chapter to sign up to sponsor/host one. I guess none of the shops in the Brevard or Asheville area signed up? Just come down to the Greenville one if you're in the area!

 Right! Oscar Blues would be a place to do it.

 @mikem115: Correct! A local IMBA chapter, shop, group, or company ponies up the cash for the screening fee. Anthill Films doesn't have too much to do with where they show besides their big premieire. We partnered with Triangle Off-Road Cyclists to bring an extra show to Chapel Hill, NC because of the big MTB community throughout Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill.
