Welcome to Ride Crazy.
The Ride Crazy concept began as a way to explore the use of bicycles as a means of therapy for various conditions and social problems. When the idea was still in its nascent stages, Camilo Atehortua embarked upon a 520-mile pilgrimage on his bicycle, from Boston to Washington, DC, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Camilo is a USMC veteran of the Iraq War and he suffers from PTSD. Using just two Go-Pro cameras, Camilo filmed his entire journey and Anthony Barounis edited the 60 GB of raw footage into a one-hour and seven minute documentary. The resulting film, Ride Crazy: The Single Man March has had four public screenings in Massachusetts, with more on the way. Additionally, there are plans to take the film on the road and visit cities across the country, hoping to raise money and awareness for various veterans' organizations. With the four screenings, the project has already raised over $3,000 for charities and we feel as though our work is just getting started.
