“Inspired to Ride” is the followup film from the creators of the wildly popular and award-winning film “Ride the Divide,” as well as their second film, “Reveal the Path.”
On June 7, 2014, forty-five cyclists from around the world set out on the inaugural TransAm Bike Race, a 4,233-mile cross-country, self-supported race from Astoria, OR, to Yorktown, VA. The route roughly follows the TransAmerica Trail as created by the Adventure Cycling Association, traversing through ten states in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions.
“Inspired to Ride” follows closely the journey of a handful of these cyclists as they prepare, compete and experience what riding 300 miles a day feels like with only a few hours of sleep each night. 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 will be entirely self-supported – no crew, no follow vehicles and no prize money waiting at the end.
The event is sponsored by the Routt County Riders bicycle club.
The mission of the Routt County Riders is simple: To unite all bicyclists in Steamboat Springs and Routt County through trails, roads, and pathways; education; and events with the goal of creating a fun, healthy, and safe bicycle friendly community.
