Never Ride Alone is a good rule to live by if you ride motorcycles. As a title of a dirt bike motorcycle film where the guy does just that in some of the most rugged and remote parts of the Peruvian Andes, well it’s weird.

Not only did he ride his dirt bike alone Scott Englund also was the star, director, editor, cameraman, narrator and everything else. For a one man project this film turned out wonderfully. Although I just don’t get the tag line “Because you can’t tell a story with a band-aid”, some of my best stories end with band-aids or worse!

In the film Scott walks us through what brought him to this point in his life. Moving his family to Peru setting up several businesses, including an off-road motorcycle touring company, all to serve the local community. He shows us how he and some of his customers and friends ride the rugged trails including one scene where a guy drops a bike over the hill, there was little left of the motorcycle.

Next, he shows us how he trains to get ready for the big ride, his training is also alone. Riding his motorcycle over even more harsh and severe terrain at high altitudes to get his body and mind ready to ride up and over a 15,000 peak where no one had ridden a motorcycle before.

The final ride up and over the peak was very well filmed. I just can’t imagine riding 30-40 feet stopping and moving the camera’s or breaking out a drone, putting away a drone and riding another 30-40 feet. Put that on top of some of the toughest off-road motorcycling I have seen, wow, props to Scott!

You can find Never Ride Alone on VIMEO or FilmFreeway.

“Never Ride Alone” was a Portland Motorcycle Film Festival Peoples Choice winner in 2019 and a 2018 Official CARE Awards Selection. Now it is also a IJustWant2Ride.com 5-star award winner (which that and $10 might buy you a cup of Star Bucks).

5 star
