Storyline

On June 7, 2014, forty-five cyclists from around the world set out on the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, following the famed TransAmerica Trail. Their mission is to cover 4,233 miles in one enormous stage race, traversing through ten states in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions. Inspired To Ride follows closely the journey of a handful of these cyclists as they prepare, compete and experience what riding 300 miles a day feels like with only a few hours sleep. These racers will rely solely on their fitness, meticulously chosen gear and mental fortitude to get them to the finish. There are no support teams, no follow vehicles and no prize money waiting at the end. They will endure agonizing climbs in the Rockies, driving winds in the Great Plains and sawtooth switchbacks in the Appalachians all for a pat on the back, bragging rights and a cold beer when its all over. Some are out to win, while others are simply trying to finish. Ultimately, this is a story of the human ... Written by Mike Dion

If you love to ride, you will be inspired!
19 September 2015 | by gerrid7See all my reviews

Mike Dion does an absolutely great job of inspiring you to want to ride your bike. I loved the movie Ride the Divide and was so excited to hear that he was doing another movie about a road bike race on the TransAm. Great movie, I've now watched it three times and it really does make me want to get out and do more riding. If you haven't seen it, you need to. It is well worth your time.

The movie (or documentary) not only shows the joys of bike riding and the amazing scenery of crossing the USA, but it takes the time to introduce you to the characters. These guys (and gals)are impressive! I enjoyed the humor in some of the characters they meet on the way as well. It's not just about racing a bike, but it's about the joy of being out.

"Why settle for a triple when you could have had a home run." This is a home run! Thank you Mike! I'm ready for the next one :)
