The Peloton Project is a documentary film that will follow the lives of nearly 40 cyclists as they prepare to take on this year’s Cancervive Peloton Project. Team members must train for a year while raising support for cancer care in their community. On October 3rd, the Peloton team will embark on a 2,500-mile journey from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, to Lewiston, Maine, for the Dempsey Challenge. They will complete the ride in just 10 days, cycling relay-style day and night. This means that each of the six teams must complete 100 miles in their 6-hour leg of the relay in order to stay on schedule. Woven throughout the team’s journey across North America will be stories of cancer survivors, caregivers, and a person who has just been diagnosed.
The Peloton Project will look closely at the people behind the cancer diagnoses to see what life is like for them before and after cancer and how they find strength to face the challenge ahead.
