Unity Ride 2017

PRESENTED ON AUG 17, 2017
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 24

Who bicycles 3,200 miles in 35 days? Andre Block and Jonathan Williams do. The pair set off from Oceanside, California on Memorial Day and ended in Washington, DC on the 4th of July. All the while filming a documentary film.
Why? To promote love and unity in this divided nation. You see, one is liberal, the other conservative. The differences don’t end there. The journey was long and challenging, but also a lot of fun. The two inspired everyone they came in contact with, worked as a team despite their differences, and experienced this beautiful country from an entirely different perspective.

However, he quickly learns that riding your bike, in a highly car dominated culture, is an inherently political act.
