Video: Life Lessons From a Seven-Thousand Mile Long Bike Ride

Jedidiah Jenkins rode his bike from Oregon to the southernmost tip of South America. Along the way, he learned a lot about himself and the world. His friend, filmmaker Kenny Laubbacher joined him for part of the journey to find out why he would embark on such a ride. This video shares some of his answers, and may provide not only a bit of insight as to why someone would ride their bike 7000 miles (11,265 km), but perhaps a bit of inspiration for seeking your own adventures too. Beautifully filmed and thoughtfully put together, this is one clip you should not skip.

I am personally gearing up for the Trans-America trail (not south America, but still) and so I find this video to be absolutely inspiring and one hundred percent sums up why I am currently on my bicycle!!! Thank you for sharing, and check out if you get a moment. I would love to connect and ask questions!

Perfectly captures why we should retain our sense of wonder.

Wow, this is so inspiring. So happy for you and truly appreciate the effort you made with the video to share the important message about appreciating the precious chance we get on this brief chance to walk the earth. I lived in Africa for 4 years a long time ago and saw a number of neighbors and people in my village die and it left me with occasionally an almost panic about how my life is dripping away. Want to make sure not to waste it. There is so much to see, experience, understand, appreciate, and learn.
