Dominic Gill Gets Back on the Bike


Remember Dominic Gill? He’s the award-winning documentary filmmaker who set off from Santa Monica last year on a 4,300-mile trek across the United States on a tandem bicycle he shared with 10 different disabled cyclists along the way. Now he’s releasing a documentary of the journey, Take A Seat: Sharing a Ride Across America, which will air as an original series on Universal Sports this month.

Last week Gill and his crew visited REI in Santa Monica to speak about the experience and screened a sneak-peek of the series, which looks well worth a watch. What’s next for Gill? He plans to take his tandem to Egypt to journey across the recently liberated country, inviting locals to join him.
