Slow Ride Home
Directed by Jesse Morrow
Documentary | 95 minutes | United States | 2018 | English
Over 5,900 km over 11 days...on scooters.
Eight pals from the Seattle's Soldiers of Destiny scooter club ride over 5,900 kilometres of American back roads from Florida to Washington in 11 days.
SLOW RIDE HOME documents the highs and lows as the riders traverse from the white sand beaches of FL through some of the most beautiful, and sometimes most desolate, pockets of the United States before finally arriving in Washington state.
Director Statement & Bio
After hearing about the Soldiers of Destiny's cross-country plan, I jumped at the opportunity to buy a scooter of my own and ride with them from Florida to Washington. This story is crafted from the unique perspective of being one of the riders! Personally experiencing a range of emotions and exhaustion played a huge part in the formation of the film. This documentary is full of adventure, comedy and the right amount of frustration that will make you want to try a two-wheeled trip of your own.
