With the exception of half a dozen of the new ones, I have ridden almost all of the Inspiration rides. Some are clearly more compelling than other but until today, all were at least worth watching once. That changed today.
I rode The Length of Time. It was 1 hour and 13 minutes although it felt like 1 day and 13 hours. Easily the most painfully boring cycling video I have ever seen.
As filmed, there was nothing compelling about the story, nothing compelling about the rider, nothing compelling about the video and even nothing compelling with the music. Storytelling at its absolute worst. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I hated it.
There were MANY times where there would be a black screen with a date and time on it. It would cut to a completely incomprehensible scene of 5, 10 or 15 seconds, then back to another black screen with a date and time on it.
There was a scene where he rode up to a makeshift roadblock with a sign that said Road Closed. Next scene he is off somewhere. Did he ride on that road anyway, turn back, teleport to another dimension in time? No idea because there was no indication of what he did.
The most interesting thing that happened during the entire video was when I tossed my wet headband behind me, and it landed on the drying rack.
Sorry but I had to get this off my chest.
