The Concept

 

A white conservative and a black liberal, Jonathan Williams and Andre Block respectively, set out on their 4th cross country cycling trip to uncover the UNITY and tolerance that is America at it's core. At the culmination of the first Unity Ride (2017), Jonathan and Andre vowed to each other, in front of the White House, to use the Unity Ride as a tool that makes the world a better place for their children to live.

 

Coming from wildly different backgrounds, Jonathan and Andre know two things: 1. they know that they are different; and 2. they believe that at the heart of America, we know we are all the same. 

We follow the riders as they pedal across the country interacting with locals in gas stations, campgrounds, bars, restaurants, and wherever they happen to be calling "home" that night.  

2022's trip being the fourth iteration of the Unity Ride, Jonathan and Andre know they will face adversity. Bad weather, long climbs in the saddle, mechanical issues, and a plodding tension between the riders make us all wonder if they are going to complete the trip. After all...America is counting on them.  

While there is always undulating morale and tension on these trips, Jonathan and Andre always conclude their trips by finding common ground amongst their differences and spreading love to every town (which often greets them with a hero's welcome.

IN 2020 we took off another cross-country bicycle journey to cover record distances and stretch from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon. Experience true camaraderie that promotes unity over division, regardless of politics or race. 
 

The SECOND journey

The Pursuit of Freedom

Jonathan and Andre travel along the path of the Underground Railroad. They visit places most have never seen, hear stories passed down from generation to generation, and face the realities of a past rife with conflict, fear, and tragedy. But they do it together. For unity. For brotherhood. For the future of America. Watch the trailer, full film coming soon.

The first journey

Exploring the Gray

"We wanted to make a film to inspire our families, to inspire our loved ones, to show why we bicycle across the country, to show where our love for bicycling across the country comes from ... now is the perfect time for us to push, to inspire, our country to unite."
