2. Videos – “Bicycle Dreams”. When you can’t be on your bike, why not be inspired by those who can. Check out this great film by Stephen Auerbach, “Bicycle Dreams”.

Filmmaker Stephen Auerbach and his crew worked around the clock to capture the highs and lows of the Race Across America. With 18 cameras in the field, the team found innovative ways to document this massive event. To uncover the inner workings of the race, embedded camera operators traveled inside the riders’ crew vehicles, gaining unprecedented access to the cyclists and their teams. Their footage captured emotional and physical breakdowns, late-night strategy sessions, and great moments of personal triumph, all in intimate detail. Auerbach then took on the enormous task of editing hundreds of hours of material into a powerful, inspiring look inside the most difficult race on Earth.

“Bicycle Dreams comes the closest I’ve seen to capturing the essence of the human heart. The drama, the pain, and the incredibly intimate moments captured on camera make for a documentary of stunning insight. The film isn’t about cycling, it’s about the human condition.”
