Documentary looks at the development of vibrant bike culture in Vancouver, Canada, and how the city's self-propelled population mobilized to promote the bicycle as a viable for of transport. You Never Bike Alone shows how the foundation for today's burgeoning bike scene in the city was set in the early Nineties when cyclists risked arrest by cycling en masse to publicize unsafe road conditions and rides of the mid-Nineties which were sometimes characterized by arrests. Rides with mutant bike collective MC3, The Wholesome Undie (an underwear ride where cyclists protest the Molson Indy), and the World Naked Bike Ride, provide amusing and entertaining spectacle, while film also shows how cyclists are dealing with road rage and the political struggle at municipal and provincial levels to create a more livable city.

An excellent documentary about the cycling culture in Vancouver with messages which should be relevant for all major cities.
1 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent documentary which is remarkable as it has been produced, it would appear, on a very low budget and with the minimum of additional support to the film maker. The work and research going into the film cover several years of the cycle history of City of Vancouver and the struggle of the cycle community to secure better cycle paths and other facilities for the urban cyclist. It shows a remarkable tolerance to cycling among the Vancouver motoring community which would test many other motoring communities in other cities as was proved by an experiment in Edinburgh, Scotland. This documentary deserves to be widely screened to bring home to the motoring public the advantages of cycling and the need to give cyclists better facilities and better treatment in our cities.
