"Bicycle Dreams" tells the inspirational story of the men and women who are brave enough to attempt the toughest race in the world: The Race Across America. They are seekers, madmen, and angels eager to set out on a daunting cross country odyssey. 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 journey's end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire. Winner of 16 Film Festivals, "Bicycle Dreams" is the most celebrated cycling film in history. To view our trailer, go to www.bicycledreamsmovie.com.
