Gasworks Backyard Cinema in partnership with the Port Philip BUG are hosting  a bike ride followed by a special screening of the feature length documentary INSPIRED TO RIDE.

On June 7, 2014, forty-five cyclists, both professional and non-professional riders, from around the world set out on the inaugural Trans Am Bike Race, following the famed TransAmerica Trail. Their mission; cover 4,233 miles in one enormous stage race, traversing through ten states in a transcontinental adventure of epic proportions. INSPIRED TO RIDE follows the journey of a handful of these cyclists. They will endure agonizing climbs in the Rockies, driving winds in the Great Plains and sawtooth switchbacks in the Appalachians all for a pat on the back, bragging rights and a cold beer when its all over. Ultimately, this is a story of the human spirit of these men and women making history and inspired to ride in the ride of a lifetime. The audience experience their journey amidst the jaw-dropping beauty along the TransAmerica Trail with its varied landscapes, intriguing locals and found stories, which dot this path of discovery.
