The initial thought and motivation is based on the British television series “Long Way Round.” This eventually led into the planning and execution of “The Ride for Lance” which later was made into a movie and is available on

Since The Ride for Lance, Able Shepherd in conjunction with Able Nation has planned and executed the following adventure rides:

  • 2019 Able Shepherd Lineage Ride
  • 2020 Colorado BDR aka The Ride for Stevie
  • 2021 California BDR
  • 2022 New Mexico BDR
  • 2022 Wyoming BDR
  • 2022 Benghazi Ride (10th year anniversary at the Benghazi Memorial in Big Fork, MT) Stay tuned for an Able Shepherd short film after the Wyoming BDR is completed 🙂
