Cycle or see a movie about cycling?

Saw All for One, a 5-year doco about Orica GreenEdge, the Australian cycling team. I went looking for . . . for what? For insights into the strange world of bikes, insights for a newbie? Motivation to progress with my cycling?
Anyway, I got swept up in the blokey, weird but rather wonderful world of extreme cycling effort, the world of the Tour, of Paris-Roubaix. All for One isn’t for everyone but it is well told, quite exciting, and sometimes even moving. More to the point, the film both scared me off excessive speed (the accidents!) and inspired elevation of my ambitions.
