Bike Commute Videos
Today kicks off the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month, so to celebrate we bring you a really cool series of videos created by BikeWise, a bike advocacy group from New Zealand. The videos follow a rider from points A to B around the area, noting dangerous intersections, advising proper signaling and offering other important information to get you to the destination safely. This would be a great resource to create for new riders in any area.
I remember when I was giving “commute reports” in my zine back before the expansion of the web and such easy access to videography, which amounted to crappy, photocopied photos taken with a disposable camera and placed next to typewriter copy (now get off my lawn kids!). Oh how far we’ve come. These videos are much more practical and helpful, of course.
Plug similar videos for your area in the comments and enjoy National Bike Month! Bike To Work Day will be here on the 18th.
