The movie follows a handful of cyclists in the 2014 inaugural TransAm Bike Race, a 4,233-mile cross-country, self-supported race from Astoria, Ore., to Yorktown, Va.
Purchase your tickets in advance for just $12 per person at or pay $15 at the door. Ticket sales will benefit Heights Bicycle Coalition.
The riders are entirely self-supported – no crew, no follow vehicles and no prize money waiting at the end. They ride 300 miles a day and rely solely on their fitness, meticulously chosen gear and mental fortitude to get them to the finish.
The athletes climb the Rockies, face winds in the Great Plains and switchbacks in the Appalachians all for a pat on the back, potential bragging rights and a cold beer when it’s over.
The Strosacker Auditorium is located at 2125 Adelbert Road on the CWRU campus. Parking garages are nearby.
