Ride with Norman Reedus is an American travel series that premiered on AMC on June 12, 2016.

AMC ordered the series on October 29, 2015 with a premiere date set for June 2016. The idea came from AMC president of original programming Joel Stillerman who called Reedus about doing a show about his love for motorcycles in which Reedus replied "Yes, yes, yes right away" before Stillerman can change his mind.
