Who would like to see the award winning film Bicycle Dreams in Adelaide? It's the documentary about the Race Across America - and epic ultra-marathon cycling race that as a coincidence has just got underway for 2012 as tweeted by Cav:
MASSIVE good luck wishes to the @BB_RAAM2012 guys in #RaceAcrossAmerica!!! 2 words: Truly. Inspirational.
The films producers have approached me to see if I'd help organise for its screening at The Pallace East End of Mercury cinemas probably in August with normal film prices of around $20 or so. Depending on how organised I can be we might have guest speaker introduce the film.
Also there was a relative of an Adelaide man posting her a couple of weeks ago letting us know he was doing it. This year there are three Australians riding. So it attracts participants from around the world.
Check out the trailer and see what you think. It'd be a good social night.

This is an excellent film, more about the race, those who participate and what they discover about themselves. Highly recommend, very well done.
I lived in a small town in the US that was on the race route near the mid point. Seeing and riding with some of the participants I gained an appreciation for their commitment, iron will and their ability to push themselves to unreal limits, psychically and mentally.
Go see it, you will not be sorry....Carl
