The inspiring journey of ability, disability, love and redemption.

This film is about way more than BMX racing. It is also the most inspirational love story you will see this year. Ride tracks the lives and careers of Sam and Alise Willoughby, two champions who fall in love and conquer the world of BMX, an extreme sport where every race is a dance with danger. Sam rises from the suburbs of Adelaide to become a world champion and Olympic medallist. But in this sport crashes are common, and injuries are brutal. When a training accident takes away everything they have known, Sam and Alise must find the strength and resilience to win their greatest victory. Ride paints a bold picture of re-invention in the world of disability, and what makes true champions and astonishing human beings, both on and off the track.

As part of our AFF in the ‘Burbs program, Adelaide Film Festival is rolling out the Red Carpet in Marion, the birthplace of Olympic medallist and star of Ride, Sam Willoughby.

Following the Red Carpet Gala and World Premiere screening of Ride at Event Cinemas Marion, there will a Q&A with Sam Willoughby alongside filmmakers Holly Truman, William Ward and Serge Ou.
