The Power of Bicycling (Get Psyched)

Has winter fatigue set in yet? Time to get psyched about biking again! This has been the worst winter of my adult life. And if you live most places in the United States you'd probably agree.  Between the extreme below-average temperatures and the constant barrage of snowstorms, it's made cycling outdoors a rough proposition - […]

By now if you haven't seen our Streetfilm "Groningen: The World's Cycling City" you should check it out.

Very Cool Streetfilms News From…The Ukraine!

I just love hearing success stories like this.  Take a gander at this new video from Lviv, Ukraine which shows off some of their recent cycling infra successes in 2013. The film was sent to me by Demyan Danyluk who's been a big Streetfilms fan since 2010.  He's a co-founder of the local urban iniative platform […]

There's nothing more dramatic than looking back five or ten years at Streetfilms footage to see how much the streets of New York City have changed. In this wonderful montage, check out the incredible changes at Times Square, Herald Square, the Brooklyn waterfront, and many other places that outgoing NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and […]

NYC Rush Hour Bike Commute!

It's fall and getting cooler in New York City, but that hasn't slowed down the people jumping on bikes. During rush hour it's starting to become a bit crowded, and that's a good thing. If you haven't been to NYC recently, you'll be amazed how much the protected bike lanes and Citi Bike are encouraging […]

Groningen: The World’s Cycling City

It's no secret that just about anywhere you go in the Netherlands is an incredible place to bicycle. And in Groningen, a northern city with a population of 190,000 and a bike mode share of 50 percent, the cycling is as comfortable as in any city on Earth. The sheer number of people riding at any […]

Streetfilms University: Sometimes an Effective Video is Very Simple

I often preach in Streetfilms University that sometimes the most effective advocacy videos are extremely simple. They just show real events/conditions on the ground as they happen.  Fortunately, you'll only need a steady hand and be willing to stake out an intersection or problem area to pull it off. Take the above video I took […]

Put it on your calendar. It's no secret that Pittsburgh is a great city of bridges. And while they may […]

Groningen, The Netherlands: The Bicycling World of Your Dreams

When I first moseyed off the train in Groningen and began the mile walk to my hotel, I remember laughing often as I looked around in little boy amazement. For years I had pictured how the world of Groningen would appear and this was the first time in my life where reality exceeded imagination. It […]

Montreal’s Car-free Rue St. Catherine and Bustling Bike Rush Hour

While spending a week in Montreal, my wife and I stayed right along the Rue Sainte Catherine, which we discovered is closed to motor vehicles from May 15 through September 6 in two main sections. The first, a mile-long stretch that's been car-free in the summer since 2008, has a lot of restaurants and is […]

“NYC’s Summer Streets 2013: Citibikes Abound” & “T.A.’s We Demand our Right of Way Rally”

I stopped by NYC's Summer Streets on Saturday to pick up an interview for another project, but once there was swept away but the thousands of people (easily the busiest one I have ever seen) and had to grab a little bit of video to share. Here it is: The most amazing thing this time […]

A 30km Slow Zone in Zurich (featuring Chicanes!)

I just wanted to collate a post on bicycling in Zurich because the Streetfilm I'm producing from there will likely not be ready until end of Summer. In that film you'll see much about why Zurich is such a wonderful place that has policies that keeps car use to a minimum in the center of […]

No, Amsterdam Is Not “Swamped” By Bikes

In June, the New York Times published a story headlined "The Dutch Prize Their Pedal Power, But a Sea of Bikes Swamps Their Capital" that instigated much debate (over 365 reader comments in one day) and a torrent of emails to the editor. The Times followed up by seeking a "dialogue" with its readers about the supposed […]
