Cycle Vixens (1978)

aka The Young Cycle Girls

How bad is it? It's a chore to sit through.
Should you see it? No, but if you do, stick around for the end.

This undoubtedly was meant to be a female Easy Rider, where three teenage girls decide to ride their motorcycles to the ocean. Most of the film is riding footage, pointing at things (usually signs saying where they are) and all to the same song repeated ad nauseum. They have the expected encounters with people who don't like bikers, or women, or both. The ending is so surprising that I gasped out loud - that doesn't mean it's good, mind you, but it 's a shock. The original version is longer and might be edited better; I saw the crummy VHS copy.
