The Ride Through Academy[1] was a 1957 motorcycle chase in which Indiana Jones and Mutt Williams were pursued by KGB agents.

Event chronology[]

In 1957, Indiana Jones and Mutt Williams escaped from KGB agents who wanted to capture them at Arnie's Diner. They fled on Williams's motorcycle and were chased by two cars of KGB agents through the town of Bedford,[2] including Main Street[3] and across the campus of Marshall College, even interrupting a football event.[4]

They maneuvered their way through a student protest where a demonstration banner fell across the windshield of a pursuing car, resulting in a crash against the memorial statue of Marcus Brody. In order to shake off the remaining car, Mutt rode his bike into the university library. They nearly collided with a book-carrying student and the motorbike fell on its side and slid under multiple tables until it was eventually brought to a halt against the chair of another student. They got back onto the motorcycle again and drove to Jones's home.[2]
