Publisher Comments:

Providing a better understanding of bicycle culture, this collection of short films displays the wide variety of people that embrace the bike. Joe Biels shorts follow the emergence of modern bike culture in U.S. cities over the last 10 years. They show that anything can happen, including activists educating policymakers, bureaucrats creating whimsical public art, strangers coming together to move a house by bike, and corporations turning their drive-thrus into bike-thrus. These 21 short documentaries include Martinis in the Bike Lane, Burgervilles Bike-Thru, Training for Carmageddon, Hunter-Gatherers Never Looked This Good, Disabled Cyclists, Sunday Parkways, Last Train Out of North America, and more.
