Good Netflix biking movie

I just started watching "Reveal the Path" on Netflix. So far seems pretty good- im only into 20 minutes of the film. Looks like their all riding mostly mountain bikes, but if you like watching cycling films- check it out. Here is the breif synopsis:


This unique film reveals the pleasures to be found on a bicycle, following cyclists to breathtaking sites around the world. The tour includes the Scottish Highlands, European mountainscapes, Moroccan deserts, the Alaskan wilderness and more.

Thanks for sharing. I didn't realize this was on Netflix yet. Another similar move on Netflix is Ride the Divide.

Ride the Divide is a much better movie personally. Also Fixations is a good one about single speed bikes in Cali.

It's a bit dated, but I personally liked, "The Bike Thief".

I watched this last week. It's directed and maybe produced by the guy who arranged for "Ride the Divide" to be filmed and features several of the same people, including Matthew Lee. It was a pretty good movie but "Ride the Divide" was much better.

I saw Breaking Away which was recommended by other forum members. Pretty darn good and entertaining. Not 100% cycling but you can see a few bike races.

Great movies listed here. I did find Matt Lee to be annoying every time he brought up the baby. It was kind of just volunteering information to random strangers. Although it was a big moment in his life so he had every right to be happy.

I agree with those above that recommended Ride the Divide and Fixation.

I thought it was kind of annoying too, but I also thought it was interesting how the film show the constrast in that Matt is someone who regularly takes on and succeeds at a challenge that many people would consider insane or impossible yet at the same time finds the much more common challenge of child raising much scarier.

Great movie!

The best movies on cycling are not streaming on Netflix but are on youtube. That was a good one you posted.

I happen to like the Line of Sight by Lucas Brunelle.
