An interesting cycling film is making its way across America at the moment, booked into select theaters only with on-demand screenings. This same model will have it showing also in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Germany and Canada. It is expected to be available on DVD soonish.

Titled _Le Ride_, it chronicles a modern attempt to recreate the route (same roads and schedule but with air transport between legs) of the 1928 Tour de France using period bikes/recreations. Only 41 of 164 riders even finished that year due to the incredibly tough route.

While it is scheduled to show in my local theater, it appears to already be sold-out completely. Looking forward to either a streaming version, video-on-demand, or DVD release.

Best,

Dan.

Looks good Dan, it's due to be on at a cinema near me in November so I've been on and ordered tickets.

Delighted to hear that, Rual!

If you see it, would you mind sharing your general impressions afterwards? It looks like I may have to wait for the DVD release.

All the best,

Dan.

Sorry but it appears to be a load of blokes all playing/singing different tunes at the same time, or am I just getting old ?
