Of bicycle thieves and classic films

Bicycle theft (and “u-lock justice”) has been the topic of much debate lately, especially with the release of this which was then artfully remixed into this.  I’m all for a good remix, but everyone knows that Italians have the market cornered on classic cycling mythology.  Vittorio De Sica’s The Bicycle Thief is required viewing.


CBC: Pedal Power

The CBC aired their documentary on the rise of bicycle culture (and the fall of Igor Kenk) this week.  I   missed it.  Partly because I was likely watching downloaded episodes of The Wire, and partly because I don’t have cable.  It will eventually be available online, so keep an eye out here.

In other news, Interbike is over.  I hope everyone who went had a good time, and thanks for sharing your pictures.
