"Inspired To Ride" follows closely the journey of a handful of cyclists on June 7, 2014. Forty-five riders from around the world set out on the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, following the famed TransAmerica Trail. Their mission was to cover 4,233 miles in one enormous stage race, traversing through ten states in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions. The film follows these cyclist as they prepare, compete and experience riding 300 miles a day with only a few hours sleep.
"They will rely solely on their fitness, meticulously chosen gear and mental fortitude to get them to the finish. And to make it even more interesting, they’ll be self-supported – no crew, no follow vehicles and no prize money waiting at the end."
From 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
