Video: The Cycling Legend of Rafael

For those of us who like to ride bikes, those two-wheeled machines are more than just a form of excise. They represent freedom, fun, and exploration too. It can be therapeutic to climb on a bike and go for a ride after a long day at the office, helping us to escape the stress of everyday life, even just for a little while. In this video, we see the redemptive power or cycling in its fullest as we follow a rider named Rafael as he takes to the road to ride from Mexico to Colorado, both as a way to escape heartache and rediscover himself. But, that isn’t the only story here as he also bring the joy of bike riding to others as well. It is a short, but powerful clip that will inspire even those who don’t ride themselves.
