Vancouver’s Multi-Modal Success Story

Perhaps one of the best transportation stories of 2016 comes from Vancouver, B.C. where they have achieved a 50% sustainable mode share (bike, walk, transit) a full four years earlier than goal (2020). 10% of all work commuters now rider bikes to work. Long traditionally a region that prides itself on transportation options and rejecting […]

Use Streetfilms to tell your community you want better bike lanes!

It's kinda crazy, but if you had told me ten years ago that I would have nearly 70 Streetfilms made that feature Protected Cycle Tracks, I'd likely say 1) how could I ever accumulate that amount of output and 2) why would you need that many? And yet, here we are, and we do! Not only […]

Bikes Are Freedom: Inspiration from the Experts

Just a little bit of bubble-gum-pop, montage inspiration, "Bikes Are Freedom" showcases bicycling footage from 30+ diverse cities around the globe while featuring over a dozen quotes of inspiration of how biking & freedom intersect for world transportation leaders. If you are ever feeling sad and blue about the world being dominated by the automobile, […]

Safety at Copenhagen’s Busiest Cycle Intersection

I got to talk with James Thoem, a Project Manager with Copenhagenize Design Company, about the key safety measures installed at what is claimed to be the world busiest cycle intersection with over 42,000 users per day. Cyclists here get an advanced green light before cars, which keeps drivers from jumping ahead and competing to turn […]

Malmö is Building a 7-Story Bicycle House/Hotel that Accomodates Cargo Bikes!

While I was on my recent Copenhagen swing (see those four Streetfilms here ) I had enough time to take a jaunt to Malmö, Sweden to meet up with bike advocate Jennie Fasth who said she was going to take me on a "calm bicycle tour" to see the city. I had no knowledge of what was on her […]

Cycling Copenhagen with Children, Canines & Couples as Cargo

I was stuck in my hotel room after two days of shooting a few videos in Copenhagen and realized I had unconsciously become more fixated on capturing people riding with their children (and pets!) than in previous trips. It could have something to do with the fact that I have a young son now. Almost a joke, […]

Watch this Amazing Dutch Film Crew bike with 60K in gear in hands!

I was in Santa Monica bicycling along the beach on the Marvin Braude Bike Trail to pick up some b-roll of bicyclists for a future Streetfilm when this incredible four-person Dutch crew flew by on bikes - with a full load of gear in hand. I immediately jumped on my bike to catch up to […]

It’s an Awesome Array of Austin Streetfilms Assets!

When I visit any city, even like I did in October to attend the NACTO Conference (see below), I attempt to do as much documentation I can in the limited time I have away from any work or speaking commitments I have.  In Austin, I was able to cobble together a really nice look at what is […]

For the COP21 Paris Agreement to Work, Countries Must Watch these Streetfilms

We now have a "historic climate accord" from Paris via the COP21 summit with 195 countries on board. There are many noble goals including stopping climate change warming at no more than 2 degrees Celsius (that's 3.6 F) at which point most scientists have agreed is the point at which the planet will become drastically, catastrophically altered. It's […]

Why did so many people think Hamburg was declaring a car-free City Center?

This one continues to be a head-scratcher! Last year, many in the transportation world thought Hamburg, Germany was making plans to declare a car-free city center. I, too, had read many articles such as this and this that reported of it. Even Copenhagenize which lists Hamburg as its #19th Most Bike-Friendly City on their biennial index was hoodwinked (make sure […]

Teasers & Bonus Videos from our upcoming Cambridge, UK Streetfilm!

In early August we'll be debuting an exciting new ten minute Streetfilm from Cambridge, UK. The city lies about an hour train ride north of London and is easily the highest mode share for bicycling in Britain: 22% of residents ride (though some say it's even higher than that.)  But the most fascinating thing is how the city […]

NYC’s Varick Street Gets a Granite Bike Path

As any bicyclist can tell you, a bumpy ride on cobblestones is no fun. In NYC, the DOT has implemented its first granite bikeway on one block of Varick Street to make it easier for cyclists and to keep them off the sidewalks. You will almost never see me on a sidewalk in NYC for any reason, […]

Bike-Share Comes to Philly With the Launch of Indego

On Thursday, Philadelphia's long wait for a bike-share system came to an end with the launch of the 60-station, 600-bike Indego system, which is set to expand in the near future. At the kickoff, volunteers and officials -- including Mayor Michael Nutter -- rode about half of those bikes to their docking stations. I got to talk to […]

Tour de Staten Island 2015

Transportation Alternatives' 5th annual Tour de Staten Island showed off some of the best biking highlights in S.I.

Hey #bikenyc: Where Would You Put New York’s Next Protected Bike Lanes?

At the September press conference where Bicycling Magazine named New York City the best American city for biking, NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg committed to adding five miles of protected bike lanes per year "all over the city, not just in the core of Manhattan.” Since then, anytime I've been at bike events or out on the streets shooting video, […]
