Blood Road

I’m back from a short vacation and I just stumbled on the 2017 movie Blood Road today. This is a good movie to watch for bicycle riders and non-riders alike.

The movie is about ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rush’s journey with her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the Ho Chi Minh Trail of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal is to reach the crash site of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos.

If you love cycling you’ll enjoy the strength of these two women on their difficult journey, but you will also be touched by the scars left behind from war and the healing power of forgiving.
