Movie – The Bicyclist

Lester Cribs is losing his restaurant and his wife in the suburbs of Detroit. As his world falls apart, he embarks on a bike trip across Michigan. The Bicyclist takes you on a journey of discovery as Les tries to relive a dead brother’s 250-mile bike ride to the Mackinac Bridge years after his brother’s death. Les’ brother,Timmy, left behind a journal of his 1994 trip detailing how a bicycle and a love for people can open any door. Les tries his best to memorialize Timmy on the ride with the help of wise strangers, but cannot escape the desperation of his new calling.

 

Not sure what to say about this one. Didn’t understand the ending. Should probably watch it again.

Contains adult content.

Fast Friday – Movie Review

A documentary on the early track bike (fixie) scene in Seattle. Assuming it was an amateur, low budget production it wasn’t bad. Seemed to be a lot of the same stuff over and over. Someone more interested in fixies might like it better than we did.

We watched the movie via Amazon but it can be watched online here.

Inspired To Ride

Was a pretty good movie. I think we both might have given it 5 stars but we got real tired of hearing the Italian Woman rider fuss about the Italian Men riders.

We watched this on Amazon.

Pantani – Movie Review

Pantani

“In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d”Italia, a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions, the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap hotel room, from acute cocaine poisoning. “

We watched this on Netflix.
