About the Movie
Phil Keoghan, the host of "The Amazing Race," left Los Angeles on his bike headed for New York, with his wingman Ben, best friend Scott, Greg a former California Highway Patrolman, and his dad. He wanted to really test his 41-year old mind and body like never before.
Riding for a cause
I was fortunate enough to share in a tiny part of the ride with Phil Keoghan in Iowa, and followed all of the daily video blogs online during his 40-day, 3500 mile ride from Los Angeles to New York. Seeing this amazing documentary movie (filmed in HD) still exceeded my expectations in every way. I'm living with MS myself, so my motivation to meet and ride with Phil was based on the inspiration I received from his incredible adventure on behalf of the "cause" that I live with daily. Now that it's available for download, that inspiration can be shared with everyone, and it's truly worth seeing! It's far more than a bike ride. It's about dreams and relationships and growth. Everyone who has seen the movie in the limited showing across the country has been thrilled, and it's even led to standing ovations in the theater! Phil Keoghan's personal philosophy is "No Opportunity Wasted" and "The Ride" should be on your "must download now" list!
I thought I was an avid cyclist until I watched the ride and saw how short I measured up. What an inspiring movie! The scenery was fantastic, the story line was amazing and the outcome is extremely generous. I have been doing the MS Ride in DeKalb, IL for 7 years and have done my fair share of fund raising. I am downloading this movie to share with my team the Pedal Heads to inspire them to reach our goal of raising $50,000.00. I have been talking about the movie in my Spin Classes and everyone keeps asking when the movie will be in the theaters. I told em to come see it with me last week. You snooze you loose! Nice work Phil and to your whole team as well.
I had the privilege to watch this documentary at the Minneapolis premier and was truly moved by Phil's steadfast determination to complete this ordeal in support of the National MS Society and to prove to himself what a 40-year old could be capable of. It was extremely inspirational and reminded me again of why I signed on again to take part in the 2011 Minnesota MS150.
Definite must see.
