Biking NYC Pre-2005: Shorts from the bikeTV era of 2001-2005!
That's me above in a promo for bikeTV!
Many of you know that before I got heavily involved in what was to become Streetfilms, I produced a cable access show in New York City called bikeTV. We had a lot of fun and the main goal of the half hour weekly slot was to show New Yorkers how much fun it was to bike places in the city with friends, how much better biking could be and to cover the advocacy world (Transportation Alternatives, Time's Up, 5BBC, etc) and what they were promoting.
Recently, I took the time to finally upload some episodes from my work (and other contributors) to Vimeo and Youtube. It's quite amazing some of the work we did - usually trying to produce a new half hour show every month. I still have people come up to me and say they discovered biking through bikeTV!
So here are a few things I excepted and posted that I found intriguing for one reason or another. If you would like to explore full episodes, click here to go to a playlist on Youtube of about ten full episodes there. So much to see like the T.A. Century, bike riding in other cities like Portland, Seattle and Providence, folding bike rides the Bike Haiku Brothers, too much to list!
