“The Ride”

Met up with buddy Phil Keoghan and pals at Regal Theatres last night in NYC’s Times Square to celebrate the screening of their new epic documentary “The Ride”, in which fearless Phil bikes across the USA. An insane trek – 100 miles a day in 40 days – to challenge himself and raise awareness for MS research, the flick is both heartwarming and charming. The shots are awesome – beautifully captured by Scott Shelley, and its full of funny, fun and inspiring moments from coast to coast. Congrats to all involved on an amazing achievement, especially to my fave shooter Scott who spent most of the 3,500 miles shooting backwards on a motorcycle (no, he wasn’t driving!).
