Cycle Chic in Copenhagen and Beyond

New film from the very good people at Streetfilms.org about the fantastic development of the Cycle Chic 'movement' that started right here on this site oh so many years ago... :-)

Wonderful to see Kristin [Charleston], Witek, Henrietta and Kristin [San Francisco] doing their funky thang.

'Xander from Toronto was meant to be in it, too, but the birth of his second child was a bit more important. :-)

We're rolling closer to the third anniversary of the Cycle Chic - Copenhagen blog, in mid-June. This is a lovely way to start getting ready. Thanks to Streetfilms.

[Disclaimer: I don't normally look THAT tired... :-) It was in the middle of the Climate Conference last December and I was working hard, it was cold, blahblahblah]

Hi Mikael! You are very eloquent in this film! But my favorite part is your badass mug at the end!

Ride on!

As a keen viewer of the wonderful Forbrydelsen, which is currently showing in Australia, I would love to see a picture of Sophie Gråbøl on a bike.

Have you got one?

Lovely video! You make a great spokesperson. How fun to see people I "know" like Kristen. And that's my leg and Prada shoe around 1:40. Famous ;)

What a great short film...it would have been nice to have been in it but I've been culturing a whole "newborn" generation of cycle chic.

and i would have looked more tired than you.Daddy needs some sleep

Cheers to you and the Streetfilms crew!
