Animated Film Captures the Magic of a Century Ride

23-year-old Drew Linne created The Ride after an inspiring 100-miler with his father

Drew Linne created The Ride as a senior thesis project at the Kansas City Art Institute. His film nails so many reasons why a century ride can be a powerful accomplishment—from early morning workouts, to braving foul weather, to wearing Lycra for the first time.

Was The Ride based on a true story?

Linne: Yeah, in 2009 my dad asked me to do the century ride with him at Lake Tahoe. I had never done any sort of cycling before that—or even anything athletic at all in my life—so it was a big milestone for me. But we did months of training and everything worked out.

Do you still ride with your dad?

No, he lives in Chicago and I live in Kansas City, but we did the same ride again in 2013. That’s about as much cycling as I do now except for riding around town for transportation.

Can you talk about the incredible scene where you reach the top of the climb? How did you decide how to convey that?

That actually happened but maybe not as dramatically. It was a really gloomy, overcast day when the ride started, and my dad was upset because he thought I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the ride as much with bad weather. When I got to the top of the first switchback, there were these beams of sun coming through touching the surface of the lake.

I just thought, wow—this is awesome.
