The SyncRIDE is a moto-doc film series featuring a week of riding with unique motorcycle riders as they take us on their ultimate ride.

Alex Crookes, CTO of EatSleepRIDE has been riding for just over 20 years, and he wants to do more. Self-proclaimed moto-addict, Crookes challenges himself to go farther every year.

"The West Ozello trail may not be long, but it’s a challenging and fun twisty ride for anyone in Central Florida. It's a ride that I enjoyed repeating several times, not just to get the shots for the film, but because it's deserted and the kind of route that can be enjoyed over and again."

Director and series editor Nick Dunlop combines irreverence, humour and majestic landscapes to remind us of what we all know: "It's important. Make the time. Go Ride." - Alex Crookes

I was very excited to see the final film and completely relieved that @Alex didn't balls it up entirely. @Nick303 made you look good :) The drone shots are absolutely awesome.

I really love how this film came together. Alex and I didn't see the finished film until it was live on Sunday.

Florida - Not somewhere I'd ever considered riding before, but short as it was, Ozello was a really nice place to ride that day.

Thanks to Nick (and Andrew) for making it all such a fun few days
