‘This Beats a Coma’ Documentary Premiere, Expo, and Ride!

You have been looking forward to watching the documentary for months. But, you’ve waited patiently, knowing that a video that takes more time to produce than it does to bicycle 3256 miles has to be amazing. One word overheard after watching this documentary: “INSPIRING” !

This is NOT your ‘standard’ documentary screening… It’s 3 events all wrapped up into one!

    For those of us who will not be able to make it to Ambler then, will this be posted online or something where we can [pay to] watch it?

  2. Markgraf says:

    Yes. More information regarding this will be coming very soon. We are working on the best method of distributing/presenting this video to as many people as possible right now. I :think: you’ll have to wait until after the premiere to see it online, but those who donated to DougTrails will have the opportunity to see it sooner (if they are not attending the premiere)!
