Inspired to Ride follows cyclists from around the world as they prepare and race unsupported—no crew, no follow vehicles, and no prize money waiting at the end—in the inaugural year of a transcontinental race across America. These athletes endure agonizing conditions, riding 300 miles a day with only a few hours of sleep. Some competitors are out to make history, while others are simply trying to finish the race. This documentary provides an immersive experience while these cyclists speed along the Trans-America Trail, revealing its varied landscapes, intriguing locals, and captivating stories, which dot this path of discovery.
