John Eldredge's Motorcycle Adventure Caught on Film

(California Road Studios)


John Eldredge, author of the best-selling, Wild at Heart book, invites men to experience what he, his three sons and two friends experienced while riding BMW adventure bikes on the Colorado backcountry in the documentary, A Story Worth Living, be shown one night only in select theaters on Thursday, May 19th.

Eldredge maybe a famous author, be he’s a novice motorcycle riding, at least, THIS kind of riding. The six men traveled a thousand-mile trail by bike in hopes of creating a film about “life, meaning and the longing to be part of something epic that is written on every human heart,” but what they got was a film that features the good and bad that comes with dual-sport riding including a “bone-breaking” crash.

“We set out to tell a story about story,” Eldredge explains. “Too many adventure films are high on great footage but desolate when it comes to content and meaning. You can only watch so many Red Bull adrenaline shots till you want something meatier—a film that talks about something worth hearing.”

The press materials for the film state that you’ll see the best of Colorado from the sand dunes, to ranch country, to the high backcountry Alpine Loop. During down times, Eldredge and psychologist Dr. Dan Allender create engaging conversations with the others. It’s a documentary and teaching guide in one.

The film is directed by Erik Ticen, senior film and TV producer for California Road Studios and is produced by And Sons Films who says “We aim to explore what it means to live with authentic masculinity as we step into the many aspects of our world today.”

The presentation of A Story Worth Living will include behind the scenes interviews as well. A list of participating theatres can be found on Fathom Event’s website.
