About the Movie
A new film from the producers of Ride the Divide. Inspired to Ride follows a handful of cyclists from around the world as they race unsupported in the inaugural year of a 4,233 mile transcontinental race across the USA. This race is the antithesis to events like Tour de France and Race Across America. There are no teams, no support vehicles, no special jerseys and not a dime in prize money. As they battle lack of sleep, injuries and spirited competition, INSPIRED TO RIDE takes us on an invigorating road trip - amidst the jaw-dropping beauty of the TransAmerica Trail with its varied landscapes, intriguing locals and found stories which dot this path of discovery.
The scenery will inspire you to go do something outside on this rock we call the world! The story will make you feel the emotional roller coaster of an endurance racer as the fatigue of racing this amount of distance impacts each one. Mike's team did a superb job of capturing the race, Americana at it's best, exquisite cinematography throughout and finally, delivering a film like no other.
Unlike any of their last films, Inspired to Ride brings together average Joes and impressive professional cyclists to achieve their different goals, yet the same goal, in at least attempting to ride across the USA. Many attempts with various motivations, the riders face obstacles of life on the road and the longevity of the feat. And even for how complicated and enduring, there is still somehow very much simplicity of the trek. And that is what inspired me the most. Great film involving great people by great people.
Aptly Named-Be Inspired!
Cyclists and non-cyclists alike will enjoy this film. Mike Dion and his intrepid crew have done it again (make sure to check out Ride the Divide-Reveal the Path as well), capturing the human spirit-both those on and off the bike. You won’t be disappointed-this is a great story.
