Filmmaker, Joe Biel, is taking Aftermass on tour. Currently on the East Coast, you can find a list of showings here.
What does it mean that Portland, one of the best North American cities for cycling, has virtually no Critical Mass? Was it no longer relevant, did its activity not appeal to a cycling “mainstream,” or was a police crackdown just so successful? What are the new goals of cyclists? What activities had been so politically successful for building Portland’s bicycle infrastructure and culture? What is the new activism? How are objectives reached? And perhaps most importantly, had Critical Mass compounded with other activism and advocacy to create North America’s premiere bicycling mecca?

Molly is great. I say this because I know her, and this video captures her personality perfectly. A well produced little bit about the joys and obstacles to bicycle commuting.
The Red Bull Ride + Style has become a defining competition in the fixed freestyle genre. Great video coverage from Wheel Talk & Chop Em Down Films.
You know those times you get up and just don’t feel like riding, can’t imagine riding into the rain, want to just pull the covers back over your head? Somewhere in the world, at the same time, there is this kid…shaming your sloth-like behavior. Now suck it up and ride.
Training for a race or just riding into the office….this still applies. Happy Friday.
The benefits a bicycle can bring have inspired two non-profit organizations, World Bicycle Relief and PeopleForBikes, to partner
on this month-long awareness and fundraising campaign called
United for Bikes.
All donations to United For Bikes, including those raised on your fundraising page, will be split 50/50 to benefit the national U.S. bike movement PeopleForBikes and the global bicycle programming of World Bicycle Relief.
24 days remaining in this campaign on the way to a $200,000 goal. Do consider donating to the worthy causes here.
