This movie proposes that we could  find new allies in promoting bike shopping by pointing out to local chambers of commerce that bike shopping actually helps  their members, small business,  to say afloat. Shot in Sydney, Groningen, Netherlands and Montreal, it looks at how bike shopping is helping everyone.http://youtu.be/442fvIFEgOoSee More

"G'day Mike, I guess it's the same as for cars. Plenty of TV coverage of racing and not much of daily driving (probably because it's boring to most people) Coverage of cars other than racing is usually around people and places. The…"

Did you get hooked into watching the Veledrome  race coverage? I watched more than I planned. It occurred to me that it's high time SBS, which calls itself, Bike Central, devoted some substantial coverage to utility cycling.Racing is all well and good, but its not going change our world for the better as we know that using bikes as transport, surely can.

AlexZ replied to mike rubbo's discussion Can Cadel's win help us build a new cycling culture?
"Simple answer, IMO No.   Cadel's win will inspire some road bike purchases, and a few more racers on Beach rd, but its effect on 'bike culture' will be minimal at best. Not that I'm a fan of the label 'bike…"

Steve Jay replied to mike rubbo's discussion Can Cadel's win help us build a new cycling culture?
