Based on the true story of Ridge View Academy’s cycling team, Hard Miles tells the story of Greg Townsend (Matthew Modine), a coach at a medium-security correctional school as he prepares a group of incarcerated students for a seemingly impossible bike ride from Denver to the Grand Canyon. As the beginner bicyclists battle heatstroke, speed wobbles, and the greatest enemy of all cyclists – chaffing – they must learn to stop fighting and ride together as a peloton. The bicycles serve not just as a means of transportation, but as a test for these struggling young men to see what they are truly capable of: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

As caring social worker Haddie (Cynthia Kaye McWilliams) attempts to be the voice of reason, Coach Townsend pushes the boys to their limit. His own words will ring hollow unless he can apply his coaching advice to his own life and make amends with his estranged father.

Also starring Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, The Goonies)Hard Miles is an uplifting coming-of-age story about the hard choice between the path of least resistance and the road to forgiveness and redemption.
