Bicycle Sport Shop presents BICYCLE DREAMS, a new documentary about the most challenging sports event in the history of mankind. In the Race Across America, cyclists are tasked with riding from San Diego to Atlantic City in under twelve days; top riders usually finish in under ten. The racers must endure the searing heat of the Mojave Desert, the agonizing climbs and descents of ...the Rockies, the driving winds of the Great Plains, and the twisting switchbacks of the Appalachians before the final sprint of the 3,000+ mile race to New Jersey.
Top riders sleep little more than one hour a night, if they sleep at all. Most fail to finish. Some die. All hallucinate and experience life-changing moments of emotional, psychological, and physical self-discovery.
BICYCLE DREAMS records the 2005 Race Across America, one of the most dramatic and compelling races in the endurance challenge's long history. Recorded along with a number of the cyclists, the film presents many perspectives on this unique race, the toughest in the world.
Attending the screening will be TOM ROGERS, a competitor in the RAAM and one of the cyclists the film follows. He'll be here to share his experience of this race.
Great Giveaway Prizes will be provided by Bicycle Sport Shop, Specialized, and Austin Cycle Camp, so be sure not to miss your chance to see this great film.
Meet at Bicycle Sport Shop at 6:30 before the show and ride your bike over to receive an extra ticket in the prize drawing.
