Winner of 17 Film Festivals (Best Documentary at Grand Rapids Film Festival, Las Vegas Film Festival, Yosemite Film Festival, Red Rock Film Festival, Moscow Film Festival, Lake Arrowhead Film Festival, Breckenridge Film Festival, Los Angeles Sports Film Festival, and many more. BICYCLE DREAMS is the powerful true story of the Race Across America, a 3000-mile bicycle race that challenges riders to cross the country in just ten days. They must overcome searing desert heat, agonizing mountain climbs, and endless stretches of open road, all while battling extreme exhaustion and sleep deprivation. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime is transformed in an instant when tragedy strikes the race. These voyagers discover what is truly at stake as they pedal on, praying for the deliverance only the finish line can bring. By journey's end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire. Reviews have been magnificent: "An astonishing documentary. Bicycle Dreams is a ride of many stark contrasts; when it ended I felt both shattered and triumphant. I realized I was experiencing its genius.” (Pez Cycling). “I imagine every cyclist who has seen this movie has ridden a little bit further or harder ever since." (Bike Rumor) "Bicycle Dreams captures the human condition like few other films. This movie is not for those who want to shy away from the tragic side of human experience. Bicycle Dreams moves us to break through the barrier of the fear of death. I have seldom found a film that captures this ‘life drama‘ as powerfully as does Bicycle Dreams." (Cycling Review) "

The film follows the trials of a handful of riders from start to finish. It focuses more on the personal, and almost disconnects from the topic, questioning the abilities and decisions only indirectly and subtly. This film, however, needs a few additional things: narration, increased production value (most of the shots were done with a poor-quality SD camera), and details about not only the riders but also the race. I wanted to know how they prepare for it, the things they eat, statistics, ways they stay focused, engaged, etc. Besides, the film could have been made to be much more gut-wrenching, with the right music director and better editing.
It's unfortunate to hear about Jure Robic, as well. He was the icon in this film.
The movie opened my eyes to how compulsive behavior can be life threatening. The people who do this race have problems, serious issues. But who am I to say what is insane and what is not?
This is not a movie about the joys of competition. It's about the will power of the human being, about the insanity a competition can create, and the horror of what can go wrong when add ride sleep deprived. There is no joy of victory, just the agony of defeat and victory.
I ride because I love it, not to prove something to anyone. I compete because I love it, and not to prove anything. Maybe what I do is no different than those in the movie, but I sure hope so...
But just think of racing across America, San Diego to Atlantic City, note I say RACING ACROSS AMERICA, or RAAM, did I say non stop, if your sleeping, you are losing time, this is a race. The record is 8 days, 8 days to ride over 3,000 miles, the record average speed is 15mph, up the Rockies, stop lights, stop signs, 8 days of racing.
What would that take, who the heck would sign up for this?
They do about the same distance in the Tour de France, but over 21 days, and they sleep every night.
This is insanity, and that's what this movie is about, incredible story, you have to watch this.
