I have seen it twice and will see it again! Phil Keoghan and his merry band gave us the adventure of tough riding and rough roads with the laughs of bone weary tiredness. Inspiration from a team of friends with a goal for MS. Don't miss this movie!

The Ride was inspirational, hilarious and engaging. It has built-in suspense and adventure, while also being funny throughout. You feel like you've known Phil your whole life after watching him ride through his journey and hearing his commentary about his experience and his relationship with his father. It's extremely personal, yet I feel it will reach a very wide audience. You can't watch The Ride and not want to do something physical afterward, especially for charity. And I agree with the other user's review--the camera work was fantastic! I highly highly recommend The Ride!

Phil Koeghan takes us on a fantastic thirty-day biking junket from Santa Monica beach all the way to New York City, accompanied by a tight cast of riders and his father in tow to assist, as needed. This movie shows the vast array of experiences he discovers during this venture. From beautiful vistas, scorching heat, billowing head winds, leg-crushing hills, to inclement weather and sickness. It is inspiring, riveting, and at times grueling to watch.

What was particularly moving for me was his alliance towards those with MS. I have MS and am fortunate to be able to cycle, although my ability to walk has been limited and my ability to run almost destroyed. This movie, along with the support of a loved one who rode an MS Ride with Phil, has inspired me to take up riding more seriously. I would love to try a trek such as Phil has documented here, but I know to do so is impractical. So Phil has done it for me and brought us all along for the journey on The Ride.

I highly recommend this movie for anyone of any age, especially those who are into biking or extreme physical challenges. It has motivated me to take my cycling to the next level and beyond. Best of all, I find this movie holds up well with repeated watching.

I'm a big fan of The Amazing Race, which Phil Keoghan hosts. I'm jealous of his job. So when I found this by accident, I was intrigued. "Phil Keoghan did a movie?" I had to check it out. And I'm glad I did.

The opening shot had me hooked. After that, I don't think I blinked again until the movie was over. Phil wanted to celebrate his 40th birthday in a big, yet unusual way. So he combined it with his passion for helping others and did a coast-to-coast bike ride across America to raise money and awareness for the MS Society.

No matter the weather, no matter the hardships, he had just about a month to complete the journey. It started out with a big splash and hundreds of riders, but quickly thinned out to 5 or 6, then 2 or 3, then just Phil by himself on a 10-speed touring bike. Across deserts, through sandstorms, in rain, snow, and over mountains, he pedaled his heart out and you see a side to Phil that you don't see on The Amazing Race.

The film shows how much gut, grit, humor, and determination Phil hides behind his infamous raised eyebrow. On the journey he hits highs and lows, going through exhaustion, depression, and elation, and manages to keep pushing on in spite of any pain or discomfort. And not only does he make a grueling ride daily, he stops in small towns and visits with people suffering with MS who have collected money and are making donations to the MS Society.

The Ride is one of the most inspiring true-life films I have ever seen. It is about compassion, determination, family, and friendship. I highly recommend this film. It is well worth your time.

Phil Keoghan's film "The Ride" is truly inspirational and full of heart. It's not only a film about biking, but a film about family, friends, perseverance, goals, support, compassion, doing things for others and learning about yourself by challenging yourself. Phil pushes himself to the extreme and even though he encounters many hardships along the way his sense of humor and light hearted personality light up the screen and his positivity shines through. It's amazing to see the people he meets along the way and hear the stories they have to share. They are all such incredible people. The film is quite an adventure! I recommend you see this film!

I am not usually a big fan of documentaries, but this one is top notch. I am a cyclist, and watching Phil go through what he did to ride all the way across America was simply amazing. As a regular participant in MS Bike Ride fund raising each year, it was also awesome to see him do it all for that great cause (and bit of his own need to deal with his mid-life crisis).

The movie is inspiring, emotional, and at times humorous. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

I loved seeing this documentary of the host of The Amazing Race practicing what he preaches and inspiring the adventurer in all of us! He isn't just dealing with the near-impossible physical aspects of cycling across the U.S. in 43 days, through driving rain, high winds, over the Rockies and alongside terrifyingly-close highway trucks, he's also meeting people every day of the ride, with wit and friendliness, encouraging and obviously caring about everyone he meets. This film is beautifully-shot (cameraman Scott rode all the way on the back of a motorbike with a 40lb HD camera), should get an editing award, is moving and (this is important!) very funny. Please watch it.
