GARDINER — Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center on Water Street will be presenting the film “The Peloton Project” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18. The directors will be presenting the film as part of the Food, Film & Conversation series. 

This film follows the lives of 39 cyclists as they prepare to take on the Cancervive Peloton Project. Team members must train for a year while raising support for cancer care in their community. The peloton team faces extreme challenges alongside cancer survivors for whom the cyclists ride. “The Peloton Project” reveals the heroic 10-day, 2,500-mile journey of both cyclist and cancer warrior in their battle to make it from Calgary, Alberta, to Maine, to celebrate at the Dempsey Challenge survivorship weekend. The film looks 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 challenges ahead.
