Netflix and Cycle? 5 Cycling Documentaries for Those Nights In

Netflix and Cycle? 5 Cycling Documentaries for Those Nights In

Posted on

What do you do to get your cycling fix when you're indoors? We recommending curling up with a nice cup of whatever-you-like and an awesome cycling documentary on Netflix. For those of you who don't have Netflix, write in and we'll help you figure something out!

Here's 5 we recommend: 

                                                              

  1. Bikes VS Cars (2015) : Bikes vs Cars is a documentary about the bike and what an amazing tool for change it can be. It highlights a conflict in city planning between bikes, cars and a growing reliance on fossil fuels. (Summary from IMDB) 




     
                                                             
  2. Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story (2014): You think you know this story? You don't. From the producers of Academy Award winning film, ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER, and BAFTA Award winning Director Alex Holmes, this documentary is an intimate but explosive portrait of the man behind the greatest fraud in sporting history. Lance Armstrong enriched himself by cheating his fans, his sport and the truth. But the former friends whose lives and careers he destroyed, would prove to be his nemesis. (Summary from IMDB) 





                                                         
  3. Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist (2014): In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions, the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap hotel room, from acute cocaine poisoning. He had been an addict for five years. This is the story of the tragic battles fought by the most important Italian cyclist of his generation; man versus mountain, athlete versus addiction, Marco Pantani versus himself.





                                                         
  4. My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes (2014): directed and written by Oren Jacoby, that tells the story of the rescue of thousands of Italian Jews during World War II by ordinary and prominent Italians, including the champion cyclist Gino Bartali. The film had its U.S. premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival in October 2014, [1] and opened at theaters in Los Angeles and New York in March 2015. (Summary credit: My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=My_Italian_Secret:_The_Forgotten_Heroes&oldid=768313313)





                                                           
  5. Personal Gold: An Underdog Story (2014): Four underdog female bicyclists becomes America's hope for a medal at the 2012 London Olympics after the men's team is banned during the Lance Armstrong scandal. (Summary by IMDB)
