The Big Wild Ride 1200K was our most ambitious and successful project to date. And it could hardly have turned out better, both for the huge staff of wonderful volunteers, and for all our riders. We absolutely loved the whole experience of bringing riders from all around the world up here to enjoy what we love so much about Alaska – an enormous wild challenge.
Because we knew it was going to be a memorable event, we gathered a team of four photographers and videographers to record the event. They're all local Alaskans, and all posess an abundance of creative talent.
The result is an expansive and rich photographic collection showing the individual human challenge and the grit to perservere across a 1,200Km swath of interior Alaska, from Valdez to Fairbanks, to Anchorage. The scope of drama and emotion captured by the BWR photo team, within the 90-hour time limit the Big Wild Ride riders had to complete the course, is uplifing, moving and inspiring.
We made so many great friends during The Big Wild Ride. We're grateful to the BWR photo team for faithfully saving so much of the experience for us to savor.
