A longing for adventure beckons six men and their motorcycles to venture through the Colorado backcountry in “A Story Worth Living.”
“Everyone is looking for a story worth living,” is the line that opens the film—an adventure narrative that captures the highs and lows of dual-sport riding, including a bone-breaking crash on Engineer Pass.
Six novice riders – father, sons and friends – take on the Colorado backcountry on BMW F800GS Adventure motorcycles to create a documentary about life, meaning and the longing to be part of an adventure bigger than one’s self that is written on every human heart.

When John Eldredge and his three sons planned an eight-day, 1,600 kilometre adventure ride across the scenic roads and trails of Colorado, U.S.A., their first stumbling block was a distinct lack of off-road riding experience. The next step was to acquire the required bikes. With the details sorted, their adventure of a lifetime swiftly became the start of a lifetime of adventure.
Work. Life. Play.
I picked John Eldredge up in my 1974 VW Joy Bus and we found trailhead to park and do the interview in my bus. (This was definitely the first time we've done an interview in the back of a bus. Hopefully not the last.)
It’s not often you meet someone with such a sweet gentle spirit. But that’s exactly what you encounter when coming into contact with New York Times best-selling author of Wild at Heart, John Eldredge.
Six men came together on adventure bikes in the backcountry of Colorado to find a story worth living. Follow them as they ride sections of the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route.
Jon Dale and Sam Eldredge speak with RightThisMinute about the ride and the making of a movie on motorcycles.
“Our culture has lost touch with what adventure even is,” says author and rider John Eldredge. “In this day of Red Bull over-the-top adventure videos—guys doing triple backflips on motorcycle—we’ve lost touch with reality.” Adventure means chasing a dream, testing yourself by attempting something you’ve never done before.
Covering one thousand miles in eight days, the group traversed the Colorado backcountry, over river crossings, through mountain passes, on gravel trails and winding highways, and up a heartstopping sheer climb that had the bikes hanging off the side of a cliff. None of the group had ever before undertaken anything this “wild, foolish, beautiful, and bold,” as Dan Allender describes it.

A Story Worth Living is the story of dreams sought after and achieved as well as all the battles in the journey. Six men embark on a journey across Colorado’s Rockies on adventure motorcycles and find much more than adventure.
It was an idea that came up again and again when the Eldredge boys — Sam, Blaine and Luke — on visits home from college, talked about their dreams, the things they hoped to do together someday. There was only one catch: None of them were bikers.
