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 journeys end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire.

"Bicycle Dreams is a beautiful film that probes deeply into the sports heart of darkness, offering an inspiring glimpse at the high price of glory." --USA Today
"Bicycle Dreams is a truly gripping film, with more drama in 8 days than an entire Tour De France. Bicycle Dreams is riveting, possibly because its less about bikes and more about people. Its a fierce human drama with bikes simply and literally being the vehicles for hope, pain, disillusionment, despair, and dreams. An impressive, inspirational film." --CinemaTalk

Aspirations and life's tragedies

Wow, what a movie. It really is a slice of epic RAAM. This is a compelling story and very well presented. It is a great introduction for those unaware of RAAM and the character of its devotees. The postscript is all the more poignant with the death of Jure Robic on the road in his native Slovenia a few weeks ago - 24 September 2010. This is a story of human endeavor, strengths and liabilities. Not to be missed.
Race Across Forever

Having been involved with Race Across America several times as a support crew member, I was very intrested in seeing another perspective. It is really impossible to convey in film just how long a transcontinental crossing feels at bicycle speeds. I found this film did convey some of the stress and a few of the problems encountered. The part about Dr. Bob Breedlove was especially moving for me. I had met him during RAAM and he was everything the film expressed and more. I am so grateful to add this film to my collection.
RAAM-it's about time

The Race Across America, RAAM, has been held for many years but does not have the recognition it deserves. It is the toughest bike race in the world. So maybe it doesn't need the papperazi of the Tour de France, but it deserves more than it gets. "Bicycle Dreams" is a start. It follows the race from LA to Atlantic City showing the stress and determination of these cyclists and their support teams day to day. If there is a shortcoming, it is that this film presents only the solo riders. No mention or recognition is given to the team participants.
Top notch product, service and delivery.

This film is an up close and personal look at what it takes to compete in the Race Across America and the characters who choose to take the challenge. The race is an emotional and physical journey through heaven and hell en route to redemption, which is (in this case) the Finish Line, in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
I love a movie that has a beginning, a middle and an end. This one delivers. Bicycle Dreams refers to the fantasy that these sleepless bike racers envision and embody. Yet this film is no fantasy. This is a reality film. You see the gut-wrenching, sweaty, physical and mental toll this race takes on riders, crews, and their families. How do they do it? Why do they do it? You feel their pain. You are exhausted at the end. You crave sleep. It's captivating, enthralling, intimidating, heart-wrenching and adventurous. To RAAM racer Bob Breedlove every day on the bike is "just another day in paradise."
Get it. You won't be disappointed.
