Reveal The Path – Movie Review

with one comment

Reveal The Path 02

I like watching movies with bicycles in them. I especially love movies where riding bicycles is the main theme, like Reveal The Path. From the makers of Ride The Divide, another favorite of mine, Reveal The Path is a documentary-like, adventure film that follows some bike riders on a tour around the world.

Reveal The Path is a genre-defying adventure film that contemplates what it means to live an inspired life using the bicycle as a mechanism to explore, dream and discover.

Regions explored include Scotland’s lush valleys, Europe’s snow capped mountains, Morocco’s high desert landscapes, Nepal’s rural countryside and Alaska’s rugged coastal beaches. Ride along and get lost in the wonders of the world… Meet the locals living modest yet seemingly fulfilling lives, leading us to question what it means to live an inspired life – however humble or extravagant. Read more.

This is an amazing film to watch on the big screen. You get to see some breathtaking shots of some incredible landscapes, meet some interesting people and get a sense of how spectacular our world is. Paired with an extraordinary soundtrack, the move transports viewers to places they might have only dreamed about. Reveal The Path does a great job of putting things in perspective, especially with all the horrible news that we’ve been hearing about. Perhaps the world wouldn’t be such a bad place to live if we all had a chance to ride our bikes around the globe – or, at least, experience it though a great movie like this.

My only criticism of the movie is that there wasn’t enough. I was left with wanting to see more destinations, meet more people, and perhaps more self-discovery with the riders. I would love to see a sequel to this expedition.

The journey in the movie is not an actual non-stop global tour, but rather a select grouping of rides that take place at different locations around the world. This is how I would like to do a world tour. I’ve often romanced about taking the full journey by pedal, family in tow as my sag-wagon. However, the reality is, there are places that I’m not ready to ride. Somehow, world-hopping to select locations, seems like a much more manageable idea. Of course, all I would need is time and money. Until then, I can just pop in my copy of Reveal The Path, and live the adventure through them.

You can pick up a copy from the store on their site, or from Amazon or a digital version from iTunes.
