Just press play. Since most of us are at home, there are only so many hours in the day where you can Zwift or reorganize your closet. This weekend, take a step away from your bad news facebook machine and watch people ride around on bikes much closer than we're currently used to. You could also learn about the national park system, Ornot.

The Accidental Death of a Cyclist

"So good and captivating" "not many cycling docs keep my attention like this one" were 2 quotes from our friends about this film. Yes, he doped, but this examines why we may want to have a little empathy for the little pirate. (subtitles) [link]

2  Outskirts: Route 66

If you're not familiar with these films, or their subjects, you should probably watch it. It's entertaining. If you are familiar with them, you should watch it because it really exposes some interesting figures across our country. Also, these guys are terrible at planning. [link]

The 24 Hour War

Ferrari dominated these 24 hour endurance races in the 60s. Ford, who was know for their giant boring cars decided challenge Ferrari by going all in on developing a car to win. This documents the history, production, lack of technology and danger of this crazy race. [link}

"As a fan of motorsport, this really gives a detailed account of what it was like during that era of racing what it meant to be a part of writing the history books. As a fan of anything to do with fierce rivalry, this has it all. A great way to spend an evening." -Christian Culpepper

Mash SF 2015

Ever watch a skate video? This is the bike version, done on fixies... with no helmets, yikes. Mash is from SF just like us and they went all in on producing an amazing film. Even if you're not a fixie person, this is worth a watch just for the views of the Bay Area and SF. They take that little scooter all over the place.  [link]

The Least Expected Day

This one is pretty popular right now and was recently released on netflix. So much drama and behind the scenes action. (subtitles) [link]

“The Movistar documentary reveals the backstory to the dramatic explosion we saw from Marc Soler at La Vuelta and why Nairo Quintana (among others) jumped ship for fresher meadows.” - Zachary Goldsmith

 

The National Parks : America's Best Idea

 

Ken Burns. He's a legend, and our nationl parks are such a gift. [link]

“Ken Burn’s work is always thoughtful, and The National Parks is one of the best. Featuring a fantastic cast of celebrity voices, and matching visuals, learn how we came to have some of our greatest natural resources.” - Naz Hamid

Quicksilver

Kevin Bacon + mess life + 1980s = gold. Time to revisit this movie. [link]

Honorable Mentions

Hell on Wheels

Watch someone apply chamois cream to Alex Zabel's bibs. He had a guy to do that for him. Also, this was a pretty crazy year for the tour. (subtitles) [link]

“A beautiful portrait of one of the sports most grueling events and the emotional turmoil the harshness a grand tour places upon athletes.” -Ferg Dog ​

180 Degrees South

Adventurer Jeff Johnson retraces a 1968 trip to Patagonia undertaken by his heroes, Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins. Wanderlust! [link]

Formula 1 : Drive to Survive 

Sorry, one more car racing one... This series follows modern day formula 1 drivers and teams through the entire season. It's such a massive sport and I had no idea. There are currently 2 seasons to binge, it's well produced, and a bit of a drama. I went in with no expectations and was hooked. [link]
