Title: Hoodride Cycles
Seen on: Urban Velo I love this little bio of Derrick in Phoenix who was annoyed with the soul-sucking red tape of running a business, so decided to just fix rides out of his backyard in an almost purposefully looking ramshackle garage. He talks about the stresses of doing it for the love, but also the value and reward of “localism”. Good on you Derrick.
Title: One Day in April-Documentary on the little 500-trailer.
Seen on: Urban Velo The 2013 Little 500
qualifications took place in Bloomington, Indiana yesterday, just before the weather turned stupid and started snowing all over the place. With that in mind (the race, not the weather), this project needs one last push to come to fruition. The documentary, One Day in April, follows four teams as they prepare for this year’s Little 500 race, showing their passion and dedication to extremely amateur racing, the surprisingly hilly and beautiful terrain in Southern Indiana, along with the storied history of this unparalleled race. Many of you probably know the race primarily through the movie Breaking Away or our recent article in Issue 32, but this documentary gives a direct and intimate portrayal of the race’s story up to this point.
There are only 3 days left for the video to reach funding and incentives start with free digital downloads, t-shirts, photos, etc.
