If you're referring to cycling tours in various spots in the world, I'd suggest you browse through the Touring forum, and then ask the question there if you haven't found an answer to your question.

If you're referring to tours like the Tour de France, go to the Professional Cycling forum.

I think he's looking for documentaries on the various tours.

There was an awesome one about the TdF called 100 Years of the Tour de France that came on tv right before the tour started:

Laptops and DigiCams, etc, .. everyone is a Blog author-publisher, these days..

Well produced..
I liked the Tom Vernon 'Fat Man on a Bike' series , on BBC, rebroadcast over PBS, years ago..

National Geographic did a story back in the early 70s about a group of cyclists who pedaled the then uncompleted Stewart Cassiar Highway.

My husband & I just watched a documentary at our local theater called, Reveal the Path. Here's more info: http://revealthepath.com/about/ which shows a trailer about a tour these guys took that brought them to Scotland, Switzerland's Alps, Morocco, Nepal, and Alaska.

You might like Race Across America, which is a documentary that follows an edition of the annual race by the same name.

Might as well add "Ride the Divide" which I found way more satisfying that the sequel and is about the Great Divide Mtn Bike Route.. (although technically, the movie was about the racers who raced the route)

Bike Tour Documentaries?

I watched Roam on amazon the other day, not too bad. I was wondering if anyone had a documentary about their cross country bike tour.
