After attending the first night of the 2009 Boston Bicycle Film Festival yesterday, I now have a new-found appreciation for Louie Evans, the man you’ve probably seen riding around Boston, hand-built bike trailers, bike racing through the snow in Alaska, and the birth of the mountain bike and mountain biking as we know it. It was really wonderful to see how bicycle culture has evolved in so many different ways, and especially hilarious to see that “Performance” video that generated quite a buzz a little while ago.
Fortunately, almost all of these films are available for you to watch on the internet, so here are all the ones I could find (some are only trailers). I couldn’t find John Allen’s video critique of biking in a Manhattan bike lane.
Doug’s Bicycle Trailers:
Bieks not bombs:
Klunkers. The birth of mountain bikes and mountain biking. Here’s the trailer, and if you’re interested in watching the full-length feature please consider supporting the filmmaker by buying a copy of the DVD
Also, thanks to Mass Bike for providing excellent bike valet service during the film fest.
