This short bike-umentary is a must-see for anyone who loves bicycles or has any interest in transportation reform. I've seen this film many times now and its message is still fresh: The bicycle is used as a primary mode of transportation worldwide and it should be used this way in America as well.
Ted White intersperses telling interviews with first class footage of bicycle use from the US to Amsterdam to China. Inherent in this documentary's exploration of America's relationship with the bicycle is a potent critique of our society's love affair with the automobile. If you haven't ridden your bike for a while, you'll want to after seeing this film!
An interesting side note: The Critical Mass movement got its name from a fascinating scene in this documentary.
