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

Worth watching just for the cinematography
14 June 2016 | by markwbinghamSee all my reviews

Even if you know nothing about cycling, this movie is worth watching. The filming captures some spectacular scenery along a route which was selected for that exact purpose ( as well as being safe for cyclists and having historical value). Innumerable frames from the movie could be made into salable pieces of art.

By virtue of the fact that they're on cycles all day the dialogue is somewhat limited, but not as much as you'd think, and it's thoughtfully edited to include a lot of wry humor and even some suspense. Not guffaw material, but I found myself smiling a lot during the entire show, with out loud snickers in a couple of places.

Having ridden the same route (you can purchase maps from Adventure Cycling Association) I can't imagine completing this route in 17 days. Hats off to anyone who completes it, and to a well-made documentary.
