One very stylish video supporting Jacksonville, Florida Bike Month
One of the great things about bikes is how bike culture and creative culture seem to go hand in hand. Even without going near the whole cycle chic thing (which, admittedly, drives some screaming into the forest), or even the concept of beautiful bikes (e.g.), there is a lot of great design, beauty and style to be found in bike websites, zines, blogs, advertising and so on. Bike videos are no exception.

It would be great if Peterborough’s creative class could come up with something like it for, say, Shifting Gears or Peterborough bicycling in general.
OK, we admit, we don’t quite get the beeping watcher thing (lurkers in Hyundais? Rob Ford police?), but the piece is enjoyable to watch, the music is interesting, the visual joke at [you figure it out] is clever and you have to like the outcome.
And think about it, while we can leave the smoking bit, who wouldn’t want a cool girlfriend who rides a Pashley and takes you bike riding in the dark? Hey, wait a minute…
