Ali and Alex, the director and primary star, are both avid racers and worked together before on "American Wrestler" a movie which made the rounds of the indie film circuit and won some acclaim. 

"Ride" is likely another low budget project much like their others. According to another post about "Ride" on Facebook, the movie will feature HARO brand BMX bikes and will be filmed in NAPA skate park, Stafford dirt jumps, and Petaluma state park all in California. In late September, extras were still being recruited on social media for the biker flick.

Craig won a Daytime Emmy for his stark portrayal of Morgan Corinthos on GH as a young man struggling with bipolar disorder and the son of a mobster, Sonny Corinthos, struggling with the same disorder. Maurice Benard, who plays Sonny, has the disease in real life and has praised Craig's passionate portrayal of the illness. #Ridethemovie #BryanCraig
