For those of you that enjoy biking documentary films, I think you’ll like this. Emmanuel Cervantes takes a look at the cycling world in more than 20 American cities and shows the growth of the industry, the people involved in growing interest around cycling and it’s impact on the community.
This trailer is the first peek at an upcoming feature-length documentary entitled Bikelantis. It’s an exploration of how cycling is changing communities and the way people are embracing their passion for bikes. The documentary takes a look at more than 20 cities. It explores the role of bike shops in cycling communities, bike sharing, city planning, competition, advocacy, and bike touring, among other topics. The Greater Lafayette area is featured as a vibrant cycling community where biking is evolving and has a tremendous number of individuals who are helping to spread the word to bring about change.
