The Light And Darkness In Cycling Is Seen In Bicycle Dreams
Bicycle Dreams was released in 2009 by director Stephen Auerbach. It follows competitors in the Race Across America, a three thousand-mile cross-country bicycle race. The film focuses on the riders as they deal with issues from the race such as brutal weather, sleep deprivation, and more.
When one of the competitors has his life taken by a pickup truck, the other riders must deal with the aftermath as they race to the finish line. Sal Ruibal of USA Today said the film has “beautiful scenery and inspirational words from riders and coaches.”
