Probably old news but has anyone seen this?
I woke up early one morning over the past week (4:30 am maybe??) and was flipping channels and this popped up. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would think most of you would like it as well. So easy to relate to his experiences on the bike. I especially enjoyed some of the Colorado climbs I've done like Wolf Creek pass. I was thinking what Karma for me to wake up early and to stumble onto this show.....
Watch Phil Keoghan’s “The Ride” documentary airing nationwide on SHOWTIMEIn March of 2009, Phil Keoghan, the host of “The Amazing Race” and MS Society ambassador, left Los Angeles on his bike for a 40 day ride across America that covered over 3,500 miles. “The Ride” is an incredible documentary that chronicles Phil’s coast-to-coast adventure where he put his 41-year-old body to the test, brought awareness to MS and inspired thousands along the way. Phil raised $500,000 during the ride for the MS movement, which has now increased to over $1 million.
This is a great awareness opportunity for MS and also a fun way to bring people together to watch the movie and raise funds by hosting viewing parties and asking people to donate funds in place of bringing food, wine, etc.
Entertainment Weekly cites Phil Keoghan’s “The Ride” as a must-see.
