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!
Just an Amazing movie!!! My 13 year old now wants to get a road bike and train all summer with me! Phil is an inspiration!!
