Films About Cycling.

Last bike movie I saw was Follow Me.  3 tricks repeated over and over, the word “epic”, and free-riders sped up to look faster than world cup guys usually inspire the gag reflex, but for some reason all I wanted to do was sleep.  Brilliant production and good riders have never been so boring.

Last good bike movie; Darin Read’s Trails Edit.  D.R.’s riding reminds me of Bruce Lee smashing his heel into some poor dude’s sternum. He’s got Purpose. Makes other “trick” riding look like something figure skaters do in the off season.

Besides the riding-the edit is brilliant. Perfect length, and very stripped down. Riding like this doesn’t need special effects.

Finally, the music. Witch’s Rip Van Winkle.  Thank You!  That is all.

Which brings me to this video…

I can’t believe the talent of everyone involved with this. Gifted riding, gifted film making and exciting to watch.
