Title: New York Bike Wars

I’ve always viewed New York as being quite progressive when it comes to urban cycling and bicycle infrastructure, probably due to the heavy messenger influence, but recently I’ve come to realize they have had the same fights to establish that infrastructure every other fledgling city has. I didn’t realize a great deal of their infrastructure (200 miles worth) was put in place between 2007 and 2009, making the urban cycling boost quite new, which means they are also dealing with the same transportation battles the rest of the country engages in. This video gives a quick history of that bike infrastructure development and perspectives of urban cyclists from a variety of sources, some not favorable.

Made in England is a book by frame builders, about frame builders. It takes a unique look at the world of bespoke frame building by showcasing the artisans in England who craft these bicycle frames.

The authors, Matthew Sowter and Ricky Feather, travelled around the country along with talented photographer Kayti Peschke, to interview the people who are leading this industry. Each artisan shares their methods, their passion, their skills and their quirks. Through these intimate conversations they express what makes them unique in this international art. The book showcases exquisite photography of the frame builders and their working environment, contrasting the raw, rough workshops with sleek images of the beautifully finished final products.

Kayti Peschke, is responsible for putting this film together .

If I was Mathew Sowter or Ricky Feather, I would have stopped in at Brompton.
