Rwanda Cycle Film

Cinematic Sunday #5 – Rising From Ashes, Rwanda Bicycle Racing Film

I’ve been interested in watching this film since I first came across the ‘in the making’ trailer a few years ago, details at the time were scarce but it looked like a great cycle film. Unfortunately I forgot all about it and the name of the film. Luckily I rediscovered it by chance this week and I’m now nominating it as CycleFar’s 5th Cinematic Sunday feature.

The film is nicely shot and is documentary style, great for getting you motivated for a quick sprint around the block, or perhaps something more. . .

Here is the official website: and synopsis:

“Rising from Ashes” is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.
